I would like to congratulate Alistair Carmichael on winning last week’s General Election.
The election was fought on very fair terms and my commiserations go to all the other candidates.
Thanks also to the election officers of Orkney and Shetland Islands Councils and their officials who worked dutifully through this period.
I also appreciate the fair and equitable column space given by The Shetland Times allowing me another means of putting Scottish Labour’s message to the public.
I have enjoyed my time meeting party members whilst campaigning in both island groups and wish them well in future campaigns.
