Alistair Carmichael, who told voters he knew nothing of the infamous ‘Sturgeon memo’ before admitting he was actually responsible for leaking it, has been cleared by an election court. So no by-election in Orkney and Shetland despite the massive porkie. At least the Cybernats are handling it with their usual charm and good grace…
We should make Carmichael Day annual & to celebrate politicians can tell the press a stonking lie.Would become like spotting the April Fool.

Couple of years time Carmichael will be sitting in the House of Lords, pocketing £300 a day. Proud and esteemed member of the establishment.
