Carmichael must resign NOW – sign the 38 degrees petition!


Alistair Carmichael must resign today as MP for Orkney and Shetland. 38 Degrees petition launched to oust him. He needs to repay the public money wasted on the Enquiry held into his conduct.

Tell him what you think here.

Our Shetland correspondent, Zara the Selkie wrote

Dear Mr Carmichael

We the People of Orkney  Shetland, irrespective of political beliefs, require that you repay personally the cost of a Public Enquiry, which you setup to find the leak that libelled the First Minster of Scotland. That the then Secretary of State for Scotland would do such a thing is unpardonable abuse of public funds when you already had personally leaked the document.

This standard of behaviour is not compatible with representing the honest people of Orkney and Shetland who expect the values of our communities to be shared by our elected representatives. This is something that you had sadly fallen short of and because you failed to admit this before the recent election we ask you to resign as MP for Orkney and Shetland pending the results of by-election. If you wish to stand for election again, it is of course your right to do so.

Personally I hope you return the public money soon, I would hate to see you as subject of a police investigation, and the embarrassment  to the islands this would cause.

Make the right choices and put the  Islands first.

 Yours sincerely

    Any honourable person in Alistair Carmichael’s position would resign, and putting a price (£17,000, he has given up) to buy back his reputation and keep his position just makes the situation worse, not better.

    His position is untenable, no one can now believe anything he says, he has admitted to lying to , and for just to peddle a politically motivated smear, it is disheartening that he cannot see that anything now he says in respect of the SNP in particular will be subject to ridicule and adverse speculation of it’s truthfulness, and of his personal honesty.

    We can now only speculate if he would have been elected at all, if the facts had been known.
    One would have hoped that his constituents would have higher standards and expectations , than his own, and rejected him.
