Alistair Carmichael on Sir Menzies Campbell

Menzies CampbellAlistair Carmichael, the newly promoted Secretary of State for Scotland, added his thoughts about the retirement of his colleague Sir Menzies Campbell to those posted yesterday.

I first met Menzies Campbell as a student in 1983 when he was a candidate for the post of Rector of Glasgow University and I was his election agent.

I became an instant fan and have been an admirer ever since. His contribution to Scottish public life has been immense and I have been proud to have him as a friend and colleague.  He’ll be greatly missed by his constituency in North East Fife and his Parliamentary colleagues in Westminster.

Menzies and Elspeth Campbell have been one of the most enduring and successful double acts in Scottish politics and they will be missed in the House of Commons.
