See this piece about our own wee Carmichael and how he wanted the best for us – old news but let’s not forget what wur wee man in Westminster has done.

Isles MP comes out in support of privatisation of Royal Mail | The Shetland Times Ltd.

“Future outside investment in the Royal Mail will be vital to protecting the universal service in Shetland, isles MP Alistair Carmichael said today.

Mr Carmichael gave his full backing to coalition government’s controversial plans for the reform of the company. Business secretary Vince Cable outlined new protections which it is claimed will make it more difficult for governments to downgrade postal services in future, and announced that the Post Office network would receive an additional £1.34 billion in state funding over the next five years.”
