Protesters: anger at MP far wider than just SNP | Shetland News

PROTESTERS seeking a by-election for the Northern Isles constituency have disputed Tavish Scott’s claim that efforts to unseat Alistair Carmichael are being orchestrated from the SNP’s Edinburgh headquarters.

The MP, who won the seat with a vastly reduced majority of 817 earlier this month, remains under strong pressure amid complaints to the parliamentary standards commissioner, a legal challenge and even a report to Police Scotland.

It relates to Carmichael’s admission last Friday that he had leaked a controversial memo asserting that Nicola Sturgeon’s preference was for David Cameron to remain Prime Minister, and then lied about it. Sturgeon and the French ambassador she met both categorically deny she expressed such remarks.

    Time Tavish was asked the question. Show the evidence for your statement about SNP control.
