The crowdfunding campaign, ‘The people versus Carmichael was launched at 10.30 am this morning. By 1.30pm it had raised £5,674 from over 360 contributions raising from £5 to £150. All the money has come from private individuals. Any money not used for litigation will go to supporting foodbanks in Scotland. This is democracy in action, ordinary people saying enough is enough.
A spokesperson for the campaign team said, ‘WOW!
The total target for the campaign is £60,000 – this huge sum is needed to cover any costs that may arise from the case and is the estimate given by solicitors in Edinburgh.
