One rule for them

Of course Alistair Carmichael should have admitted right away that he had authorised the leaked memo but it’s scarcely a hanging matter, since leaks to the press happen all the time, especially during political campaigns; and anyway it is well documented that Nicola Sturgeon was encouraging English voters to vote Green instead of Labour at the time, which seems to me to reveal more or less the same sentiment that was allegedly contained in the memo.

While not excusing the beleaguered Mr Carmichael, I think it ill becomes the SNP to be howling for his blood since they have a MP sitting for Gordon who hasn’t told the absolute truth all of the time and as far as I know nobody is calling for his resignation.

There seems to be one rule for the Nationalists and another for everyone else.
