Immense ego of Skene (Ian Selbie)

According to Danus Skene’s article (The Shetland Times, 15th July), he has one immense ego if he believes that his being ill around election time possibly affected the SNP vote.

With the size of the votes for Tavish Scott did he not get the message.

But having said that it does look as if our MSP has thrown his hat in with the SNP.

    Tavish was the vote of choice as a block to the SNP, no more than a tactical vote. He is now in his usual position of sitting on the fence, at least he is fairly harmless in that position, if a tad ineffectual. Dannus however, is now showing his true colours, Bigotry in abundance! Funny he never mentioned little England when he was campaigning. Now he shows his true Nationalist nature!!
