SCOT goes POP!: The country that forgot it was lunchtime

“It looks like we’re the lynch mob that forgot it was lunchtime – or maybe we’re not a lynch mob at all, but just fair-minded citizens who dare to expect certain basic standards of those in positions of privilege.  As I said myself when the revelation broke, I was genuinely shocked – Malcolm Bruce may truly believe that the whole world knew all along that all Lib Dem MPs routinely lie to the public, but the news hadn’t reached me.  I always thought that Carmichael was tiresome, but basically honest.

Mary Ann Kennedy (and I presume it’s THE Mary Ann Kennedy) said it best in a supportive comment she left on the fundraiser page –

“This has nothing to do with party politics and everything to do with accountability. I would expect every elected member similarly found wanting to be dealt with in like fashion. Dhan t-sitig leis.”

With such a huge amount of money having already been raised, there’s now an onerous responsibility on the organisers to make sure that this legal challenge does actually take place.  I think everyone understands perfectly well that there’s a chance it won’t succeed, but as long as the matter is taken to court and the law is tested, people will feel that they’ve had their money’s worth”
