Not good representation (Donnie Morrison)
Could I ask isles MP Alistair Carmichael how he intends to represent the large percentage of his electorate who object to the Viking Energy windfarm?
Pointing out his delight at his fellow Liberal Democrat’s (Ed Davey) decision to back island windfarms he declared “he had lobbied hard behind the scenes for this to happen”.
Mr Carmichael told the BBC: “This is an issue on which I have campaigned since I was first elected to parliament.”
I had naïvely assumed that MPs were paid to represent all their constituents, not just some, and I now realise that with regards to the windfarm, I and many others have no representation either in Edinburgh or Westminster.
