“Bikers are orphan-makers” MP attacked by Labour colleague

The MP who branded motorcyclists “widow-makers and orphan-makers” has been attacked by one of his own party colleagues. Fellow Labour MP Steve Pound, a member of Parliamentary Motorcycle Group, said Barry Sheerman’s remarks were “hysterical nonsense”. The MP for Ealing North said: “Some people should get it into their tiny heads that bikers are more often than not the victims...

We were never included in the original Future Transport Policy when labour came to power because motorcyclists did`nt exist.

So now labour have elevated us to the sub-human level, well thats nice of them. I am surprised they had time to take their snouts from the trough to foul mouth us bikers?

I wish his Lardship well at the coming elections.

Are we really that suprised?

To me MP stands for Moronic Person...these people live in their ivory tower (aka Westminster), exist in a parallel universe to the rest of us and consider themselves to be above the law of the land. Mr Sheerman seems to think his narrow minded, infantile opinions are important. And the irony of it all? In a few weeks time he will be soon be begging his Huddersfield constituency to vote for him so he can keep his job.

Oh Boy

What a twit, I wonder if this Barry Sheerman would blame the pensioners for being mugged.

I can just see it now, sheerman saying; those bloody old people should not be allowed out because they cause themselves to be mugged.

Let's all blame the victims rather than the perp.

Lack of apology

If he knows his statement came out wrong, why not just apologise?  Simple answer, he's quite glad that he said it, and he meant it.  I'm pretty sure it's stuff like dangerous driving etc and hardened road furniture that causes far more deaths than the 1% of road traffic that is motorcycles.

Steve you'd be more than welcome!

I hate the idea its a Labour MP - I could understand it if it was one of Lord Snooty's two faced bunch - I think Steve Pound is spot on saying it as it is - well done that man!

But please give Barry a kick in the gonads!
