S.O.U.L. ......Shetland & Orkney Udal Law Association.

To mark the start of a new period of activity we have now launched the SOUL Report 2004. It details our findings to date, including, as far as we know, the only presently available potted history of the islands.

We detail all the anomalies we have found (backed by respected international legal opinion) that make Shetland and Orkney's position unique. We have not shrunk from exposing questions of sovereignty and official chicanery. We reveal how shaky the Crown Estate Commissioners' position is. The Report is written in plain language, but with enough detail and references for serious academics.

In short it's a pretty explosive document that the authorities would rather have suppressed.

The SOUL Report 2004 costs 3.00 plus 1.50 p&p.
