Liberal Democratic Party: Cameron only respects whatever it takes to get him to No 10 says Carmichael

Press Release   •   Feb 15, 2010 10:23 GMT

“We all know that David Cameron will sup with the devil to get into 10 Downing St." said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Scotland Secretary.

Commenting on David Cameron’s speech to Scottish Tory Conference, in which he will claim he would ‘respect’ devolved government in Scotland, Alistair Carmichael said:

“David Cameron’s claim that he respects devolution would be laughable were it not so depressing.

“Irresponsible meddling in Northern Ireland and proposals to disenfranchise Scottish MPs show that the truth is he will do and say whatever it takes to get himself into Number 10.

“He knows his party is finished in Scotland. His own Shadow Scotland Secretary has admitted a ‘lack of thinkers’ among Scottish Tories.

“We all know that David Cameron will sup with the devil to get into 10 Downing St. Many of us suspect that he and Annabel Goldie would probably even pay to have lunch with Alex Salmond to do so.”
