Ian Liddell-Grainger: the Royal connection

Picking up on my post about the strange behaviour by Conservative MP Ian Liddell-Grainger, Jonathan Calder has pointed out a regal connection to the story:

Iain Liddell-Grainger, says his Wikipedia entry, is the great-great-great grandson of Queen Victoria and is 339th in the line of succession to the British Throne. So it would take only 338 unfortunate accidents for him to become our king.

I did blog about Liddell-Grainger’s royal connections back in 2007. In those days he was only 314th in the line of succession, so the danger of our having King Ian has receded.

Meanwhile, thinking about the animated cat on Liddell-Grainger’s website, Caron Lindsay rightly reminds us that:

Animal bloggers are not that unusual. We have the eclectic Pink Dog and the ever wise Elephant for example, who bring joy, randomness and good sense to the internet.
