Minister Alexander demands apology

Douglas Alexander, the minister criticised over the Scottish election fiasco, has demanded an apology from the politicians who ?? impugned his integrity??.

After the publication of a critical report into the voting shambles earlier this week, the former Scotland Secretary, who is now at the International Development Department and Gordon Brown’s General Election co-ordinator, was accused by MPs of ?? his finger in the till and of  attempted gerrymandering??.

Ron Gould, the Canadian election expert who wrote the report, said in a letter to the Electorial Commission that he never suggested specific actions were taken by ministers to advance their own party’s interests.

Following Mr Gould’s comments, Mr. Alexander now wants an apology from politicians including Tory leader David Cameron, shadow Scotland Secretary David Mundell, First Minister Alex Salmond and Scottish LibDem MP Alistair Carmichael.
