So much for freedom of speech. We have been told by our own management that as civil servants we cannot give evidence before the Select Committee and should therefore decline our invitations to attend!

Absolute disgrace. As you can imagine this is causing quite a hoo-ha with the chair of the Select Committee threatening charges of "Contempt of Parliament." Western Isles MP Angus MacNeill has accused the Govt of acting like something out of the Soviet Union!

In my position as a Union rep with PCS (Public and Commercial Services Union) I found myself being interviewed on the local Beeb station (BBC Radio Shetland) today. I hate giving interviews lol.

Link below to a brief article in the Telegraph:
