The local Lib Dem MP does not appear to like us. Link
What a completely blinkered kn*b! :cry:

I would like to see the evidence of motorhomes being responsible for ruining Highland roads.
Seems extremely unscientific. Highly emotive and irrational, imho.

How to make friends and influence people - not!

A sad person indeed. Reflecting the views of the constituents he represents?

I suppose he, and they, would be a lot happier if we rebuilt Hadrian's Wall and prevented anyone in a motorised vehicle from crossing the border into Scotland at all. :mad:

He gets my vote as tw@ of the year, as per another thread we don't carry disposable barbeques, nor do we crap on the side of the road, we have cooking facilities onboard, and also a toilet, two things which car drivers don't.

Extremely heavy campervan damaging the roads. So we are accused of sh*tting on the beaches, emptying our toilets on the roadside, leave rubbish all over the countryside, but this fellow has decided our 3.5 tonne vehicles are the cause of all the damage to their, not very well maintained roads.
I can't see Ms Sturgeon will pay much heed to a LibDem Westminster MP somehow with a few signatures on a petition.

I quite like the idea of the wall being rebuilt, with motorhome overnight parking at all the forts.
If Nicola gets her way it'll be needed I suppose.

Ho-Hum, what about the heavy artics supplying goods to the area, what about the VERY heavy HGV's transporting logs from forestry land, what about the bins wagons, oh no, just MH's and camper vans.

What about the highlanders venturing south adding to the congestion in towns and cities, lets charge them for the privilege of entering civilisation.

I can't see this one going far, whether north or south, very soon our communities will require income from where ever we can get it!!

The mans a prat.

Don,t forget that only a small minority of people see any benefit from tourists to the majority they are just a hinderance to their normal life. Here in Cornwall most people would be glad if we never saw any even the English who have second homes here have a dislike of visitors pubs an restraunts busy with them making it hard to find a seat Many places we now have to pay to visit that once was free Lands End to name one

Don't confuse the gross weight of a vehicle with the pressure that is applied to the ground by the tyres. I'm often told I'm too fat for the ground conditions by those that don't understand.

Rather busy right now but I will be emailing this clown and pointing out a few facts of life to this ignoramus.
Quite frankly it beggars belief that this moron is an MP his lack of basic understanding of the situation is breathtaking in the extreme.

The only good thing is if Sturgeon ever gets to read this pile of tosh, she will put into her file named bin.

But sadly this is the kind of thing I have been banging on about on here.
Idiots like this can come out with drivel like this and be listened to, and apart from individuals telling him about the birds and the bees,
We have no organisation to counter this.

I will post my reply to him on here.

Well that's because, unfortunately, you live in an attractive part of the world.

I guess if Cornwall cut itself off from the world it would survive fine, then?
Maybe we can resurrect Hadrian's army for you and build a wall to keep the marauding foreign hordes out? 😁 🤣:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Then it would be just Cornish residents plus all those many holiday properties that would stand empty with no occupants contributing to the daily local economy.

Second homers. They can afford to dislike visitors because they don't need them to make money and can be as nimby as they like.

Land's End has charged an entry fee for donkey's years. Are you maybe talking 18th century?! 🤔 😉 😘 😂
'Tis no worse than the hundred's of other touristy places around the UK that charge a fee for entry to their so-called 'attractions'.

Hey up. I can remember Lands End being enclosed and I'm not that old 😜
I think Cornwall was just being used as an example in that post.
Having said that there have always been a lot of folk here who dislike the emmets...

I don't understand. Don't want to 'hi jack' this thread but would be interested if you started a new one.
