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...

Leave bikers alone

Yet another muppet, maybe if the roads wernt in such bad condition and more biker friendly barriers were in place plus less road furniture, deaths may actually fall.

I think in one mcn issue i remember that one in five motorcyle deaths was attributed to a collision with (dangerous to bikers) barrier and that it would be safer to miss these barriers completly, so what does this goverment do? OOH yeah they add terminators on the start of these barriers, not very biker friendly.

This goverment is anti biker, hence the bike test gets more difficult to stop new riders, police have specifically targeted bike speeding were there licence may be lost, and the roads are in the worst condition i've ever seen.

Labour Hoon

It's like the expenses scandal never happened. You'd think these clowns would keep their heads down and their mouths shut. This buffoon claimed a total of £158,642 in the year2007/8 and yet he still feels he has the authority to lecture adults on what form of transport to use. Anyone with the slightest self-awareness would, doing what these MP's have done, act like a civilised human being and resign.

A Thought

To use some of his words, Around 1260 people in cars die each year, which is an astonishing figure. In one year more people are killed in car crashes than British soldiers killed in combat in the last 40 years.

It'd be interesting to know how many cars have caused the deaths of other road users, such as the 572 pedestrians and 115 cyclists.

Oh really?..

.. Someone needs to tell this idiot that the real world is a risky place, full stop.

My stock reply to twats who say this sort of thing to your face is: Well I hope I die soon so I don't have to listen to more crap and disinformation from patronising / do-gooder bigots like you.

This moron is another reason why no self respecting biker should ever vote for Labour, the party of lies. lies and more lies.

If you want to ban everything in the country that causes death then everyone would probably kill themselves from boredom. The whole ethos around motorcycling is the fact it is a release from the mundaneness of life and society.

Look at the amount of people who die each year from: heart disease and lung cancer for example (and how much it costs the taxpayer). They are staggering figures to say the least yet: fast food, alcohol and smoking aren't illegal.

I think his naivete on motorcycling should warrant for his resignation as well (expenses scandal aside).
