"There’s also the must-have fashion-accessory factor where this latest Adele release is concerned. Just as the nation’s bookshelves once bulged with unread Harry Potter or Bridget Jones books, having a copy of ‘25’ sitting casually on the coffee table when guests visit earns you membership of the ‘in’ club, the club that says we’re all ‘in’ it together. The CD could consist of Adele belching for ten seconds and it wouldn’t really matter. Whatever musical merits it possesses, ’25’ is essentially leisure industry merchandise with the aesthetic value of a T-shirt. Such is the era in which we reside"

There is a book in there , if anyone ever dares to tell the stories. Rick maybe?
I wasn’t aware anyone spoke Norn.
That is right ; Faroese is the closest living remnant.
That Norn is it?
As close as you’ll find today, I think.
We Shetlanders are a bit diehard about this sort of thing :-)
If you can read this then count your blessings. You have had a lucky escape:-
I'm still laughing at that bloody tui joke :-)
