What the Parliamentary Commissioner Said =#carmichaelmustgo

This is the email reply sent out by the parliamentary standards commissioner

Thank you for your email. I have been asked to reply. I am sorry that I have not been able to do so sooner.

You wrote to the Commissioner expressing your concerns about Rt Hon Alistair Carmichael MP and his involvement in the disclosure of a memo about a conversation between a Scotland Office official and the French Consul General, which in turn relayed information about a conversation between the Scottish First Minister and the French Ambassador.

I am writing to let you know that the Commissioner received a number of similar complaints and she has decided to begin an investigation into this matter.

The Commissioner has posted on her web-pages that she has begun an investigation. She will not comment or provide updates while her investigation is in progress but the report of her work will be published on the Parliament website in due course.

I hope this information is helpful.

Yours sincerely
Gwen Harrison
Office of the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards
And the original

Dear Sir, I am dismayed by the lack of action over the revelation that Alistair Carmichael is a liar and a cheat. It would appear that British FairPlay has gone out the window and during elections we can expect any amount of skullduggery. Is this the future? You can lie to the media, the public and your constituents, cost the taxpayer for an enquiry that you secretly know the answer to and yet get away with it all by saying sorry? He is bringing Westminster into disrepute, an institution that the British public are already distrustful of.
Please consider how his behaviour reflects on the the publics perception of Modern Politics and on the Houses of Parliament in general.

Yours Faithfully,
JW (name redacted – who wants to be Trow Food?)
