Have just received this from My Former Acting First Minister:

YOM [Translation = Your Old Majesty ... he insists in calling me "old" , even though he is older than me!],
Now that the courts have spoken, none of the history matters any more. I may well have got some details wrong, but we can now stop arguing about them. The courts have now spoken. The whole of the Scottish judiciary (From Sheriff court to Appeal Court) is united around the notion that the basis of their jurisdiction (and hence the basis of Scottish and UK authority) in Shetland relies on The Word of Brian (Brian Smith, the Shetland archivist [Translation= Who wrote the Magazine Article that Scottish Court's claims rely solely upon]).
YOHAGS [Translation= Your Original Humble And Grateful/Grovelling Servant].
