I've just seen locally recorded CCTV video from the last few days of a group of 4 lads smashing up cars with those little mini scooter things, they did at least 3 cars in one street, threatened a woman who tried to stop them and then ducked onto the nearby cycle route.


What sort of age were these dangerous criminals? Have to admit I've never had to stop the local sort riding around on little mini scooters (NB. They normally use ATV's, beaten up cars et al. Though a couple last week were on the bus and tried to intimidate me for the next twenty miles; I'd instructed them to put the cigarettes out and when they refused........they got the message and put the fags out immediately :wink: )

Trouble is Boris is a Tory and he rides a bike (cyclist?), so when he lies to us again (which he will), when he screws us all to improve his bank balance (which he will) and the country is up the creek without a paddle (which it will be) then that will further blacken the image of bike riders and cyclists, simply because he is one.

Not that he gives a smelly fart one way or the other of course.

Maybe he has arranged to get a percentage of the new Boris Bobby's, to patrol the cycle tracks and keep the poor people and their kids on bikes from the local council estate off them?

Winner, Winner, chicken dinner!

Genius move, problem solved!

Boris was once in a gang of youths that went vandalising and terrorising the local populace. It's called The Bullingdon Club. He has retained that mode, however, being full of the gene that prevents big blonde eejits from ever growing up. There's another one in that Yankland. Gawd-knows what nasty club he was in as a yoof. They are 100X nastier now, mind, those moneyed yoboes.

But how did these arrested (or should be) developers ever get into political power? Are there actually Gods who are having a joke on their human toys? I think we should be told!

BoJo vs Trumpet, to last big stupid kid standing! With luck they will eat each other and disappear with a satisfying gulp&phart noise.

I find it depressingly sad to say you are accurate in your observations and there is a strong possibility that 'Gangs of youths on the cycle track' will soon be the very least of our worries, maybe 'civil disorder spilling onto the cycle track' will be the thing to avoid.

However, I feel there is a strong possibility, that this is all a dream!

I am hoping that I wake up before he enters into a pact with Farage after the soon to be announced General Election.

And they chose the right city for their activities. Imagine how long a similar bunch would last in Glasgow. :wink:
