Letter / ‘You will get fleas’

I find myself in complete agreement with Fiona Grahame (Tavish: MP case is a ‘political show trial’; SN, 9/11/15).

In my time in Shetland, I had occasion to seek advice or help from Mr Carmichael on both personal and political matters.

I found him to be a good constituency MP, giving prompt and honest replies to queries, or pointing me in the right direction to get the answers I required.

Alistair’s downfall was being in coalition with the Tories in government.

He is the embodiment of the aphorism: “If you lie down with dog, you will get fleas”.

The MSP meanwhile, was good for opening things and giving out prizes
