Join the debate!
THE INDEPENDENCE referendum reignited political debate in this country, not least in these islands.
But that debate did not stop on 18 September last year – never before have so many people become so engaged in how our public affairs are run. This can only be a good thing.
Having published all shades of opinion during the independence campaign, Shetland News is proud to launch Viewpoint - a regular opinion column covering local, national and international issues from an island perspective.
We would welcome contributions from right across the political and cultural spectrum, and hope to stimulate lively debate that will help shape Shetland’s future. Contributions can be sent as articles or letters to firstname.lastname@example.org, or comments can be made at the foot of the page.
