More than ever this farce of a general election has shown that politics must change from the lies and broken promises we get from the main political parties.
It is time for a fresh approach, free of old party dogma where your voices will be heard.
Free from an outdated monarchy, Shetland (and Orkney) voters deserve better and this election at the ballot box you can have your say; the independent way with an independent candidate supporting your fishing and farming issues as well as preparing us all to meet climate change in Shetland and Orkney.
David Barnard your independent candidate will represent Shetland and Orkney’s best interests free from the constraints of old party politics.
Please give David Barnard your vote on 12 December.

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 400 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;
- Give a voice to the community;
- Grow site traffic further;
- Research and publish more in-depth news, including more Shetland Lives features.
