  • Nothing to do with me. The man is known locally for being a complete asshat.
    All trails are built with permission of the Forestry Commission and in harvested forest, well away from the ancient, natural forests. The FC also monitor building and tell us to change anything which could cause problems for other forest users. We generally get on well with walkers and horse riders and I have never heard of any conflicts or incidents.
    Also we don't ride in groups of 30-40 like he says, we leave that to the hunt (which he is a member of) who tear up bridleways and are known for intimidating walkers and cyclists.
    He should really do some research before writing articles.

    Yep, and a right theiving Tory scumbag. One of the highest claimer of expenses in parliament and threatened to prosecute anyone who revealed politicians expenses.
  • "asshat" is hugely underused IMO.

    Yes, complete wankër...

    Expenses claims
    Liddell-Grainger claimed a total of £166,109 in expenses, including for office, staffing and travelling costs, in 2007-2008. Under revised regulations, in 2010-11 he claimed the reduced sum of £147,004 for expenses, the sixth highest of all MPs in that year. Liddell-Grainger has registered his wife as a parliamentary assistant and in 2010 included both his wife and his two eldest children on his list of staff, the only MP at the time to do so.

    Controversies
    In 2006 Liddell-Grainger was disqualified from the WriteToThem league table after faking e-mails and replies to himself to improve his "responsiveness rating" on a website which helps people contact their elected representatives. Liddell-Grainger's spokesman stated that the e-mails had been sent to test the data that the website was judging him on.

    At the 2010 general election Liddell-Grainger refused to attend any election hustings or to take part in the BBC's election coverage. A Facebook group was set up asking "Where's Ian Liddell-Grainger?". Liddell-Grainger said that he was busy canvassing and dealing with casework.
