Alistair Carmichael was part of the Tory led government that let the 1000 richest families double their wealth
“How come we are poorer Mummy Vole?”, Svein asked yesterday.
Well, Mrs Vole replied, ‘Our Government is full of rich people with lots of rich friends and they were worried about getting poorer. Big companies and their share holders also got cross about paying tax like normal people. If they were asked to, they would huff and puff and promise to run away. So, the Government has used something they call ‘Austerity’ as an excuse to take money from us and give it to their friends. Its something they call ‘capitalism’.
“Thats not a good thing?”then said Svein?
“No, it isn’t. We want a Scotland that is for everyone, the poor and the rich.”
“Is that going to happen?”
“It may, if people start voting for the SNP in Scotland and Labour in England.”
