The Vole’s Comrade, Fiona Grahame describes what is going to happen at the Electoral Court on November 9th.
We need your ongoing support. Every point raised has been won by our legal team so far.
The date has been set for the trial of The People v Carmichael for the 9th November 2015, Edinburgh and may last for 4 days. During those 4 days Alistair Carmichael MP for Orkney & Shetland will be required to give evidence to explain to the court why he lied to the people of Orkney & Shetland over his involvement in what has become known as ‘Frenchgate’.As one of the petitioners I have been accused of being part of a mob, being on a witch hunt and even being a black shirt. Fortunately my father, K.O.S.B. World War II veteran is not alive to hear those offensive remarks. Those who now shout loudly in defence of Alistair Carmichael MP self-confessed liar should reflect on his voting record over the most recent years in Westminster. As the Deputy Chief Whip (12 May 2010 – 7 October 2013) and the Secretary State for Scotland (7th October 2013 – 8th May 2015) he was instrumental in pushing through the Tory/LibDem coalition policies which saw unprecedented welfare cuts to the most vulnerable in our society.
