I have just written to our MP, Alistair Carmichael, as follows and I urge friends and colleagues to do likewise:
“I didn’t write to you earlier about the vote on bombing Syria because it never occurred to me that, with your long and honourable record as a defender of human rights, you would contemplate supporting David Cameron on this issue.
“Now I read that you intend to vote for the bombing campaign, which will undoubtedly cause civilian casualties. I am truly shocked and dismayed by this news.
“I hope you will reconsider before going into the division lobby this evening.”
