We all know what has happened with food banks in the UK since the austerity cuts began under the Coalition. Even Alistair Carmichael admitted there was a link between benefit sanctions and reliance on food banks. We do not believe they should be needed in a civilised country and are so sad that our own MP was part of the Government that has made them a necessity. This is why we think it appropriate to pass on to them any surplus money raised by the crowdfunding campaign that is requesting the courts to declare his election null and void.
So money will not be wasted – since the article published by Bella Caledonia carrying an update appeared last night (August 20th) £4,000 extra cash has been donated and more is coming in every couple of minutes- we are very, very grateful for the support that helps build our determination to bring matters to a decent conclusion as soon as possible.
You can contribute here. Together, we will reclaim our polity and make sure that our politicians are no less honest than anyone else.
