I've no idea. Who mentioned good taste?

I'm just talking about inciting violence and stoking up general ill-feeling that is already far too prevalent. Do you think that's a good thing?

That's what I took from your post. Incitement to violence is a crime, surely?

'Stoking up general ill-feeling? I'd certainly disapprove. I might tut, too, but that's some way short of meriting enforced moderation.

You MIGHT tut?

Gosh, that's quite a reaction. Let us know when you actually tut at something - I can't wait to see what gets you that riled up.

MEANWHILE - I hadn't realised we were discussing this same programme on 2 threads! here is the extensive discussion already in full swing:

I try not to peak too early. "General ill-feeling" is not top of my list to have a coronary over tbh.

That journalist is Peter Walker with plenty of cycling experience and author of the excellent "Bike Nation" I don't need to watch the program to trust his conclusions.
