Alistair Carmichael should resign

Resign your position as MP.

Why is this important?

Alistair Carmichael MP should resign as an MP for allowing a false leak regarding Nicola Sturgeon 's preference for Prime Minister. He has already taken responsibility for it. But as this was not known before election and his mandate being so slim; the people of Orkney and Shetland should be allowed to judge his behaviour in a by election.

It looks like the investigation into this matter has also been hugely costly to the taxpayer. Pay back the money and quit.

Reasons for signing

  • Alastair Carmichael should, in a properly functioning society be jailed for abusing his position as a representative of the people. However, his resignation will have to do instead.
  • This self confessed liar should not be allowed to hold public office and if he doesn't have the integrity to resign then he should be sacked
  • This person has lost any credibility he ever had. Pride alone, if he has any would have seen him resign

It seems he has no integrity left and we have to hope that he is suspended by Parliament so we can trigger a recall. Keep on with the pressure.

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.

Alistair appears to be trying to ride out the wave of discontent. We must keep the pressure on and rid Shetland and Orkney of this Liar.
