Topsy Turvy Results
This poster, featuring Fair Isle, is for a race of sailing boats, 2014 Fireball Europeans. However, the result of the 2014 European Elections in the Shetland Islands Council Area provides a welcome explosion of a fireball for the Liberal Democrats, damaged by their implosion of votes further south in the rest of the UK. They not only came top, but with over double the number of votes secured by the Scottish National Party. Their Coalition partners, the Conservatives, came sixth, while the United Kingdom Independence Party, triumphant in many parts of the country, were beaten by the Scottish Greens. Shetland does things differently.
