    More shoddy journalism by the Shetland Times,Remember there are 2 sides to every story and as always you have never tried to get the other side regarding the supply off goods to the local council.The SLMG are having a meeting on the 10th August and i personally cant wait for this meeting so we can discuss it as adults instead of the usual scaremongering tactics of the SLMG.

    I also hope you will have a journalist there to report accurately what is spoken about.
