Strong Candidate for the Worst Person in the World

Woman 'poses as dead cyclist's aunt' to oppose new London bike lane

A woman posed as the aunt of a cyclist who was killed in London in order to oppose plans for a new segregated bike lane, according to the victim’s mother.

Eilidh Cairns, a television producer from Alnwick in Northumberland, died aged 30 in 2009 after being hit by a tipper truck while riding in Notting Hill in the borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

Her family was contacted by several people who attended a council meeting held this month to discuss a proposed cycle scheme in Kensington, saying a woman who spoke there claimed to be Cairns’s aunt and said: “Had Eilidh been alive today, she would not have supported the scheme.”

with no bike lanes. Just to see what happens...

2. Gross

If you have to lie to make your point your arguments aren't very good. I feel sorry for Eilidh's family.
