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...

Cause and effect

I'm having a bit of a rant tonight, which isn't like me, but I'm absolutely sick and tired of politicians interfering with the rights of individuals to make a choice,  yet we have to put up with their decisions based on information supplied by so called advisors or the Office of National Statistics. So whose running the country. Politicians or advisors? Here's a good example of the madness that is taking control.

Fact : If I put a lump of raised tarmac in the road, I would be charged with intent to cause bodily harm to a road user . If the council do it, it's done to improve road safety.

Fact : Police advice suggest we wear hi-viz jackets to be more conspicuous to car drivers. A few years back, lights were designed to be constantly on by manufacturers  under various Govt safety guidelines to improve safety and so we would be more visibile to car drivers,so that clearly didn't work.

Fact : Stick a camera up to catch speeding road users and the number of accidents will decrease. Yep, and if you keep changing the speed limits, you can catch even more speeding road users. Oops, I mean reduce accidents even more.

Fact : I'll pay my road fund licence each year to help maintain the roads, or at least, that's what I thought. Clearly my money is going somewhere else. Isn't that an issue for the trade descriptions people? Can't the Govt be charged under the sale of Goods Act. You pay for something and you are entitled to something in return.

Fact : I'll get a job and pay taxes, get a mortgage and I'll even take out a pension plan. Then I find out that all my investments are worth f**k all and the taxes I have paid have been used by expense fiddling politicians to feather their own nests and to their own personal profit.

What goes around.....There's an election coming up soon and I reckon it'll be the lowest turnout of voters in history.  I really hope there's a hung Parliament because I'll be there with the  rope to hang these f****g useless, cheating bastards.

Rant over....

Car expenses

"The senior backbencher, who claimed £8,613 expenses from the taxpayer for car use in a year" - what's all that about?  Maybe we should petition that he uses a bike in future, it'd save a fortune...


Also, is he going to look at how many accidents include cars and other four wheeled vehicles?  Can we get this guy banned from office please?

Tell loved-ones not to vote Labour

Tell loved-ones not to vote Labour because they have astonishingly poor judgement.
I truly hope that this statement is not representative of the way MP's do their job.
For once I am glad there is a civil service to act as buffer between these clowns and reality.

'Around 650 people on motorbikes die each year'

He states  'Around 650 people on motorbikes die each year' is this figure correct?
