This Criminal Should Be Shot

As a decent, law-abiding cyclist I was outraged to see the Leader of the Opposition flagrantly breaking The Highway Code in this video clip recorded by the Daily Mirror. The Tory boss was spotted outrageously breaking the law by cycling the wrong way in a one-way street, passing through red lights and taking the wrong side of a bollard on his 30-minute trip to work.

His crimes included:

  • Wrong way up a one-way street - Dawson Place W2, The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea: Breach of Road Traffic Act 1988 which requires road users including cyclists to obey traffic signs or face a penalty.
  • Progressing while lights on red - Gt. George Street, SW1, City of Westminster: Breach of Traffic Signs and Regulations and General Directions 2002 which advises that cyclists should not use the crossing while the red light is showing.
  • Taking the wrong side of a keep left bollard - The Mall, SW1, City of Westminster: Breach of Section 36 of Road Traffic Act 1988 which states that a person driving or propelling a vehicle who fails to comply with the indication given by the sign is guilty of an offence.
  • Crossing a white line at traffic lights - Parliament Square, SW1, City of Westminster: Breach of the Road Safety Act 1988 which states that all road users must comply with the indication given by the road signal.

These are really serious crimes that in the past might have been punished by being kept in stocks or pillories and, for cyclists on board a naval ship, by hanging, drawing and quartering.

And what was Cameron's pathetic excuse for putting thousands of people's lives at risk in order not to be late arriving at the House of Commons? Apparently he wanted to be there in time for the announcement by Gordon Brown of a future public enquiry into the UK's participation in the invasion of Iraq. An action that a small group of subversives have falsely suggested might have been unlawful and resulted in the deaths of one or two foreign people.

Shame on you, Cameron. Get your priorities right!

Never mind the cycle maniac. Shoot Boris the Buffon and shoot Red Ken. Then I'll have a chance of becoming mayor.
