More United's values of opportunity, democracy and a commitment to protecting the environment are the values I have been striving to deliver in serving Orkney and Shetland. I pledge to continue to stand by these values if re-elected.

As MP for Orkney and Shetland, Alistair has proved over the last 16 years that he is committed to addressing local issues and serving the needs of his constituents.

Alistair is well known for his work on human rights and has been an active campaigner for the worldwide abolition of the death penalty. Alistair's efforts to campaign against the use of a British-made drug in lethal injections were directly responsible for the Government's 2012 ban on exports of this drug to the US. There have since been reports of delays to planned executions and a drop in the overall number of executions.
