    Hate them, they should pay road tax like everyone else using the road, they should stick to the law and not think traffic lights, one way streets and pavements are nothing to do with them and can be use and abused as they like.

    3 abreast today in front of the bus and a mile of traffic behind them as they poodled along chatting. In the words of our great one bassas all of them....

    LR has a big gripe about cyclists riding 2 or 3 abreast. His blood pressure goes very high

    They did that in Ireland 10/12 years ago. Wtf??/ A complete waste of money. Every speed sign and old directional signs that had miles on them was changed. 18 million i think it cost. load of blox.

    sorry i thought it was the wind-up tram section .... people who can vote in austria have grown up with only the euro - i bet the old french men in 1790 said the same when the metre came in there 
    The barleycorn is the smallest Anglo-Saxon unit of length, Notionally the length of a corn of barleyThis archaic measure is still the basis for current shoe sizes in Great Britain & Ireland, with each (whole-numbered) shoe size differing from the next by the length of one barleycorn....

    The last four paragraphs, bullshit, bullshit, bullshit and more bullshit, basically another half a million down the plug hole on top of the £1.2 billion they originally spent on the fiasco in the first place...
