Where's Shetland?

I would truly and honestly like to apologise to the operator and supervisor at the Scottish Ambulance Service in Inverness, at whom I have just shouted angrily. But good grief, if sending emergency ambulances out to parts of Shetland is your job, some basic knowledge of the islands' geography might be a good idea. And if I can find a postcode by going to 192.com, surely, dear hearts, you can too.

Bloody Adam Smith with his 'Wealth of Nations', with trade specialisation notions, leading to that Free Market economy then that globalisation thingy.

I for one, enjoyed the old 192. Used that many times when you could still find a phone box.

Indeedy!
But those ambulance folk are definitely in Inverness. Can't mistake that Cromwellian accent.
And oh, for the days of free directory enquiries...not to mention buttons A and B...
