We are delighted to welcome Alistair Carmichael, MP for Orkney and Shetland, to talk to us (via Zoom) about his brief as Lib Dem Spokesperson for foreign and commonwealth affairs.
Alistair was born and brought up on Islay. His parents are hill farmers rearing sheep and cattle. Being an islander and a farmer’s son have shaped who he is and his politics more than anything.
He first joined the Liberal Party in 1980 as a fourteen year old. Alistair was attracted to the Liberal Party because of their emphasis on allowing communities to run their own affairs.
