Independent MSP condemns MP’s ‘deliberate attack on a fellow politician’ | The Orcadian Online

Independent MSP condemns MP’s ‘deliberate attack on a fellow politician’ Friday, May 22, 2015, at 7:12pm Jean Urquhart MSP An independent Highlands and Islands MSP has condemned Alistair Carmichael for not taking responsibility for the leaked memo before the findings of a Cabinet Office inquiry were released this afternoon. Jean Urquhart MSP said: “Mr Carmichael’s actions go far beyond a simple ‘error of judgement’ – this was a calculated and deeply cynical attempt to undermine the integrity of Scotland’s First Minister during the election campaign. “It was a deliberate attack on a fellow politician and this incident seriously calls into question Mr Carmichael’s fitness to continue as MP for Orkney and Shetland.” She added: “Politics is all about best judgement and integrity, and he has failed his constituents on both counts – by falsifying the memo and leaking it in the first place, and then by delaying his admission of guilt until after the election.
