Whilst I agree about the Marmiteness of JV,I do think he's right about the dislike of cyclists by significant sections of society and not just motorists either.
I constantly ask myself why that is :?


Jealousy.
A shortcut has to be a challenge, otherwise it would just be the way. No situation is so dire that panic cannot make it worse.
There are two kinds of people in this world: those can extrapolate from incomplete data.

There's that Conservative Minister who car doors cyclists as well! And then leaves the scene without leaving his details!

I agree. When I hear his whiny voice on that video makes me feel I'd probably "assault him" (his words). I wouldn't (very anti-violence) but what annoys me about this case is that many non-celebrity cyclists experience far worse and despite comparable video evidence nothing happens. But a celebrity who posts on Facebook ...

(When I say worse not acted on I'm referring to the many videos posted here and on youtube, I don't have a video camera).
