I voted for Tim Fallen as leader of the Liberal Democrats and feel Tim is the correct choice. However, Tim doesn’t get it when it comes to the Alistair Carmichael issue at all.
Tim has said that decent people want to give Alistair a second chance, that decent people see that he is a decent hardworking MP. Is the implication that anyone wanting redress for the lies, the expense of the enquiry, the political opportunism to basically smear the First Minister of Scotland are not decent people!
This issue is not about having a go at Alistair Carmichael, this not about mad SNP Nationalists point scoring and trying to humiliate a Liberal MP, it’s about none of that. This issue is about a style of politics that many in Scotland won’t put up with anymore, it’s about lying to the electorate , it’s about allowing a costly enquiry to take place when Alistair knew the truth, it’s about his constituents not having all the facts and its about a political elite who pretty much think they can do what they want.
No Tim, you don’t get it. Scotland has changed, Scotland is sick of Westminster or many are. Scotland won’t put up with gutter politics or politicians with no honour anymore. If you can’t get that then the Liberal Party will die in Scotland .
