IN LAST week’s Shetland Times there was an open letter sponsored by the Windfarm Supporters Group listing the names of all the businesses that are in favour of the Shetland Charitable Trust granting £6.3 million to Viking Energy.
I would like to thank WSG spokesman Chris Bunyan for his efforts, as I now know which of these “wealth creators” I will NOT be supporting in future.
I am assuming that the many businesses not named have not succumbed to the supporters’ group tactics and it is these businesses I will be using in future.
I realise it is going to be difficult to survive without the Muckle Roe bed & breakfast and Yell strawberries, but hope to manage somehow.

Shetland News is asking its many readers to consider start paying for their dose of the latest local news delivered straight to their PC, tablet or mobile phone.
Journalism comes at a price and because that price is not being paid in today’s rapidly changing media world, most publishers - national and local - struggle financially despite very healthy audience figures.
Most online publishers have started charging for access to their websites, others have chosen a different route. Shetland News currently has over 440 supporters who are all making small voluntary financial contributions. All funds go towards covering our cost and improving the service further.
Your contribution will ensure Shetland News can: -
- Bring you the headlines as they happen;
- Stay editorially independent;

- Grow site traffic further;
