Alistair Carmichael complained at one point yesterday that he was tired but then he must have discovered his second wind because he was still up at 1 in the morning posting that he "was with the grouse Club minus Lord Thurso". I'm not sure what kind of Grouse he meant, the whisky or the bird, but either way, his mood seemed to have lifted.
