How green is Jo Swinson?

If Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson is renowned for having a “chequered history” with respect to environmental issues, as an article in The Ecologist claimed earlier this year, then her decision to accept £14,000 in donations from the director of a company that holds fracking licences may have played a major role in earning her that reputation.
