Press Release   •   Feb 03, 2010 10:05 GMT

“This serves to illustrate how Labour do not represent the change that Britain needs and the voters will be looking for come the General Election," said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Scotland Secretary.

Commenting on Gordon Brown’s announcement on electoral reform, Alistair Carmichael said:

“Nobody believes for a second that Gordon Brown has any enthusiasm for electoral reform.

“They will remember that it was him who killed it in the early days of this Labour Government.

“This is a cynical manoeuvre by a Prime Minister who sees his time running out.

“This serves to illustrate how Labour do not represent the change that Britain needs and the voters will be looking for come the General Election.”
