My Former Acting First Minister has sent me this:

YOM,
I just got a reply to my FOI asking what proof the UK government has that Shetland is part of Scotland. They quote 2 cases, the first of which contains no proof - just a judge's unsupported opinion. The question was not tested in the courts until I took it there. The other is my own case RBS v. Stuart Hill!!!! This was the one where the pursuer failed to come up with any argument (at which point I'd won, but nobody told me). In the absence of an argument from the pusuer, Lord Pentland constructed one on their behalf! His first duty was to hear proof of jurisdiction, but he just treated it as an aside. I've declared the decision void and the court has not rebutted.
Excuse my mirth.
It's all at: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/shetland_as_part_of_the_uk#incoming-495238
Just waiting to see what the Scottish lot come up with.
YOHAGS.
1. A "judge's opinion" is NOT Law.
2. An argument constructed by a Lord is (a) Still not Law, and (b) Perverting the Course of Justice.

So ... it's still all down to The Word Of Brian.
