Don’t they know there’s a war on? Given that the government has finally woken up to the very real threat of a ‘yes’ victory, Mr S was rather surprised to hear where the Secretary of State for Scotland has been. Spies report that Alistair Carmichael spent the day in London yesterday. Presumably someone had to be in charge of handing out the Saltires.
Witnesses reported him ‘loafing’ around Portcullis House, and he was even papped popping out for a casual coffee:

The Scotland Office confirm that Carmichael was in London all of yesterday, but were quick to add that he’s on the stump up north today. Better late Together than never.
