The first stage is to raise an election petition in the Courts. This could begin a process which could have the recent result in Orkney and Shetland overturned. £5,000 must be raised by Friday and the legal team estimates that £50-£60 000 is a realistic amount that will need to be raised in the next month. Any excess funds raised will be donated to foodbanks in Scotland. Donations can be made here.
Tim Morrison, one of the campaigners involved said,
“This is is not a party based campaign. Mr. Carmichael said that he would have had to resign as a cabinet minister over this. We do not understand how he can stay on as our MP. We know that our friends and neighbours want this to happen.
