He is married to the daughter of Viscount Matthew Ridley, linking him both to eight generations of Tory MPs and the prominent climate change sceptic Matt Ridley, his brother-in-law.
The Ridley’s are a little difficult as they all seem to be called Matthew White Ridley.
But one is never “Viscount Matthew Ridley”. One might be Matthew, Viscount Ridley though.
But the best way of detailing this relationaship would be…..he is married to the daughter of Matthew, the 4 th Viscount Ridley, his brother in law is thus Matthew, the 5th Viscount Ridley, or as he is better knon, Matt Ridley the prominent….
And Ridley’s not a prominent climate sceptic at all. He’s sceptical about how great the damage might be a compared to some estimates and positively fulminating with rage at the costs of what we are being forced to do about it. But that isn’t scepticism about climate change.
