Boris Johnson yesterday said there should be "zero tolerance" of cyclists who break the rules of the road. When asked about his own boss' cycling mishaps, he blustered, saying: "Show me the evidence !". Obviously, Boris doesn't bother to read the press before he ventures out in the morning.
The Mirror reports today:
Bike menace David Cameron faces a humiliating lecture from police safety bosses over his hazardous cycling.
Met chiefs called him "very stupid" after the Mirror filmed him breaking four road laws - including going past a red light - in 22 minutes.
They will send a cycling expert to give clueless Cam safety tips. But Tory London mayor hopeful Boris Johnson had no sympathy for him and declared:
"We should have zero tolerance of cyclists when they break the rules."
Senior officers say they plan to give Calamity Cam, 41, a lecture on his haphazard riding "to save him from an inevitable trip to A&E in the back of an ambulance".
A trip to A&E in the back of an ambulance for David Cameron ? Perish the thought! We can't have that! It is in all our interests that David Cameron is taught to obey the Highway Code with all possible urgency. I would suggest that he joins a Cycling Proficiency Class for nine-year-olds at a local primary school. The future of the country is at stake.
