You know, moles are quite peaceable creatures. Alien, in fact, to the fair islands some of us call “home.” But, provided our nibbles and bites aren’t too much of an impact, the farmers and gardeners are happy to have us here.
So as I sit in my tranquil burrow, nibbling on a tasty titbit, I have been trying contemplate what Mr Carmichael is indeed trying to achieve. There is undoubted gratitude for his services to our island and the good that he had at least attempted to achieve. However, this matter has grown beyond our islands. For the betterment of Orkney, please consider how your determination to remain will affect us.
