Touring on a bicycle is a great way to explore and appreciate the countryside and towns you pass through. Make a difference...

That's it, play the man. I've come to expect nothing less.
'Name calling' indeed. Pot, kettle, black.

Perhaps you don't like having your cosy right wing sensibilities challenged?

I think maybe you're unfamiliar with the theory and practice of 'debate'. Plus ca change.

The sixth age shifts
Into the lean and slippered pantaloon,
With spectacles on nose and pouch on side,
His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide
For his shrunk shank, and his big manly voice,
Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness and mere oblivion,
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.

We closed the borders, folks, we nailed it.

No trees, no plants, no immigrants.

No foreign nurses, no Doctors; we smashed it.

We took control of our affairs. No fresh air.

No birds, no bees, no HIV, no Poles, no pollen.

No pandas, no polar bears, no ice, no dice.

No rainforests, no foraging, no France.

No frogs, no golden toads, no Harlequins.

No Greens, no Brussels, no vegetarians, no lesbians.


No carbon curbed emissions, no Co2 questions.

No lions, no tigers, no bears. No BBC picked audience.

No loony lefties, please. No politically correct classes.

No classes. No Guardian readers. No readers.

No emus, no EUs, no Eco warriors, no Euros,

No rhinos, no zebras, no burnt bras, no elephants.



We shut it down! No immigrants, no immigrants.

No sniveling-recycling-global-warming nutters.

Little man, little woman, the world is a dangerous place.

Now, pour me a pint, dear. Get out of my fracking face.

With London as a Scottish enclave.

I can see Sturgeon plotting over the breakfast table this morning:

' Okay, we'll take London, and maybe as far south as Manchester, but that's it! Of course the wall will have to be electrified, with laser cannons, and then there's the problem of building a tunnel between Scotland and London... Bring me the best Scottish engineers in my kingdom! '

Oh yes, certainly, they'd become border towns then.....................only cyclists would be allowed north!
