Should Alistair Carmichael resign?

Recommended Posts



Alex Salmond lied continuously as part of his "yes" campaign in the referendum and there will undoubtedly be times, still to come, when Sturgeon will utter untruths. I am not saying that it is Ok to lie and I have never voted LibDems in my life but even I can see that the guy has been a good constituency MP over the years.

The right to freedom of speech is a fundamental one but it does bring a responsibility with it to tell the truth. The right to smear an opponent is not one we should be defending.

Attempting to deflect the conversation from this principled issue of holding your MP to account in this case will not make either his guilt or this issue go away.


It's a shame that one of the 2010 manifesto pledges they did not get through the last parliament was the right to recall your MP.
