Earl of Morton attacks Danus Skene for being too common to represent Orkney folk

11245237_10206887121043476_696091849_nIn the strangest election intervention we saw this week, the Earl Morton wrote to the Orcadian to complain that Danus Skene was too common to represent Orkney and Shetland. He had only been to Eton and was only the chief of his clan. We Voles, condemn this snobbery and think the aristocracy should be able to rise above their privilege and serve ordinary people as candidates.

Danus did well. Better than anyone would have thought. On behalf of the mythological creatures, vermin and assorted fictional creatures of Orkney, we salute him for being prepared to stand and enable democracy to function in the islands.
