Alistair Carmichael was elected to Parliament in 2001 as MP for Orkney and Shetland.
During his time at Parliament Alistair has shadowed a number of portfolios in opposition, speaking for his party on issues relating to the work of the Home Office, transport and Scotland. After the 2010 election, Alistair was appointed as Chief Whip to the Liberal Democrats and Deputy Chief Whip to the Coalition Government. He held this role until October 2013 when he was appointed as Secretary of State for Scotland.
Join us for an informative evening where Alistair will give us a fascinating insight into the workings of his time in the Coalition government, playing a leading role in the Scottish independence referendum and about the state of parliament and UK politics in the light of the EU referendum and this year's general election.
