MONDAY saw the launch of The National, a new daily newspaper that promises to fly the flag for Scottish independence. It joins Shetland News and the Sunday Herald as Scotland's only news outlets to be supportive of the Yes campaign. Jordan Ogg reviews the first edition.
Sometimes I can forgive metropolitan media types when they forget that Shetland exists.
The isles are awfully far away, after all, and there's not much going on – apart from being home to one of Europe's largest oil terminals, one of the UK's most important fishing fleets, and one of Scotland's largest construction sites, the Total gas plant.
