In a recent what’s known now as a car crash interview with LBC Radio Alistair Carmichael proved he literally doesn’t know what he is talking about.
He could not answer basic questions of how the Liberal Democratic manifesto commitments were going to be funded proving Liberal Democrats are literally making things up as they go along.
This stark admission in front of thousands (and probably now millions online) of people by one of their most senior MP proves you might as well carefully tear up the countless leaflets you will receive from them over the next few weeks and recycle them in the cludgie.
Look, this guy is looking to be our MP again. You can carry on voting for this man because that is what your mum and dad did, and their mum and dad before them, or you can really find out what is best for you and your family.
Nobody seems to like change and yet change is the only constant in life. You can bury your head in the sand and try to preserve your life in aspic but life had a funny habit of not accepting that.
This is the time to take a deep breath and grasp that nettle. Our country is at a crossroads and it is time to take another path. The Liberal Democrats are a busted flush here. Vote SNP on 12 December.
