Lib Dem MP Stephen Lloyd to be sued by defeated Tory rival

by Stephen Tall on August 6, 2010

The BBC reports:

Lawyers for Nigel Waterson, who was Eastbourne MP until 2010, confirmed he was to sue Stephen Lloyd for libel. The action is to centre on a leaflet produced by his Liberal Democrat successor during the 2010 general election campaign.

The Corporation notes that “Mr Waterson was cleared of any wrong-doing over his expenses claims”, so let’s remind ourselves of his expenses record:

Nigel Waterson claimed mortgage interest/rent payments and food bills at his second home in Beckenham, Kent. Also billed taxpayer £1,055 to paint house and garage

And Mr Waterson also had problems retaining the support even of local Conservatives, let alone the wider public.
