The MP and the quad bike

(BBC)
A week after a seven year old girl was killed in a quad bike accident, which made the national news, it seems that one MP has also chosen to eschew the law of the land. Namely by ferrying children who are not strapped in or wearing helmets.
The main fault may lie with the two adults in the trailer whom one assumes are the parents, but as the driver, and as an MP, Nicholas Soames should know better.

Soames is not the only MP who flouts the law with regard to quad bikes...
as reported back in May07.

Those of us who monitor hunts see this kind of behaviour all the time, it is typical of the massive arrogance of the hunting fraternity.
They think they are above the law of the land. Note the silence from the Countryside Alliance chair Kate Hoey......
