    Alistair Carmichael MP has been appointed Liberal Democrat home affairs spokesman at Westminster.THE UK government has once again refused an appeal for information about whether an investigation into northern isles MP Alistair Carmichael was deliberately delayed to avoid influencing the Liberal Democrat’s election campaign last May.
