It is the policy of The Orkney News to allow members of the public to express their views through this publication.
We clearly mark when an item is a person’s view, opinion or a letter.
The Orkney News takes no view on these opinions.
We publish a variety of views so long as they are not racist, homophobic or any other form of hate speech.
One of the huge problems created by social media is an intolerance when a person conveys a view that you do not agree with. Discussion is to be encouraged and The Orkney News will always allow space for people who wish to express alternative ideas.
