Labour MP: Tell loved-ones not to ride motorbikes

A Labour MP has urged people to tell their male loved-ones not to ride motorcycles.Huddersfield MP Barry Sheerman called motorcyclists “widow makers and orphan makers” who were “disgraceful in a civilised society”.   He said: “If you have a husband, boyfriend or son who wants to get a motorbike, please try and persuade them to get something with four wheels instead.” Join...

what do you expect from the establishment

Typical knee jerk reaction to the image of bikers being bad ass (lol) and a danger to them self's.

Dear Barry, Congratulations, you have on your own efforts managed to make up the minds of millions of bikers all over the UK on who they will vote for in the coming won't be Labour, you will be out of power for a generation to come. When will the Government and the PC brigade learn that you cannot tell people how to live their lives...its wrong and disgusting, Labour have sunk to the same level Hitler, One model society for way mate it's not going to happen, you can call bikers "widowmakers" and all the other rubbish you spout but the only disgusting and untolerable people is see on a day to day basis are you and the rubbish that sit in Parliament. Labour have broken most of their promises to the people of this Country on things like the European referendum and then we have M.P's being investigated for pocketing OUR MONEY....WELL MATE, IT ALL STOPS IN MAY 2010. Labour have been the worst Government in living are Sir...............a class one idiot. Regards D. Hamer

Not as dangerous as...

According to the governments own figures for 2008 you're more likely to die as a pedestrian than as a motorcyclist!

School boys & girls chasing a fellow pupil & stabbing him to death on London Tube is civilized society?

Shouldn't  he be thinking about sorting that out maybe? or come up with some reform plan or even harsher punishment for youth crime? Not all bikers  are like the moron who got a jail term and a ban yesterday for riding like a shit-head with his mates on a public road!! What about Paramedics, AA, Quick response recovery, Police bikers, Couriers, some NHS doctors, Handy men(repair), and the huge amount of people who work in the motorcycle industry? Should they all think about a new career because this MP has had a bad experience with a biker? It goes to show how out of touch some MPs are!!!!

I ain't married and don't have any kids. I am frequently made aware of how dangerous bikes are by my father who was a pathologist and used to tell us on every possible occassion [u]exactly [/u]how dangerous they are, I don't need to be lectured to by this idiot.

MP talking borrocks

Oh good, another fully enlightened MP spouting baseless rubbish. Would it not be better for him to concentrate his efforts on reducing the causes of the statistics, such as improved rider/driver education, better roads, reduction in roadside clutter etc? Don't forget, you disgraceful widow makers, you are ALL voters; take the chance to shove it up the MP's hoops (without lube) at the next election, it's what they dserve!

Self serving, pompous, pious pillock. It's not surprising the public have no faith in politics and MP's in particular. He should go back to submitting dodgy claims, lying to the public (Oh, I see he is!) and taking jolly's abroad to discuss climate change.

Go fuck yourself

This guy can go fuck himself. Firstly his figures are wrong. Secondly he takes the naked statistic out of context and doesn't look to explain the whys and wherefores. Many fatal bike crashes occur due to the idiocy of the rider involved. At least on 2 wheels the idiot only takes himself out. This knobrot MP would rathet the idiot was on 4 wheels thus increasing the chance of people being hurt. Let's face it a dickhead in a car is more of a threat to the general public than a dickhead on a bike. And we are all aware of who wins in the bike vs car fight so  what is this guys problem. Smoking and alcohol kill far more people than bikes but he's strangly silent on these widowmakers. Did I mention this guy should go fuck himself? I did? good i thought  it was important that he was aware of my feelings on the matter.
