I hear Our Glorious Leader Boris, is planning to introduce electrical-powered “e-bikes” next year in North London. These £700 bikes will be funded from TfL’s £913 million cycling fund (Yes, £913 million on cycles while the many West End streets are blighted by pot holes). So the boys in blue can keep up with the e-bikes, they’re being issued with £1000 bikes that can go up stairs.
Every day we see cyclists running red lights, riding down one-way streets the wrong way, riding at night without lights, and terrorising pedestrians on crossings. How many illegal cyclists have you seen pulled up by the Polizia? They are still going to break the law, only quicker!
Boris is also said to be thinking about running buses on chip fat (really).
