A victory for tabloid journalism!

Well I may still be in a ski resort, but snowboarding is canceled thanks to me taking out my friend who was on skis. Have managed to damage my leg in a deeply bruised way. However, I came off lightly compared to her. Basically her wrist is buggered, and should she never be able to play the piano again I may as well cut my own knackers off before she does it for me. Mind you, this has had the advantage for her that the boys all act like man slaves around her, which I know she enjoys greatly.

Besides the pain though, I have just been greatly amused by the news that David Cameron has had to issue a public apology after being caught running red lights and going the wrong way down a one way street on his bike. Dare I say it, but a marvellous piece of tabloid journalism by the Mirror. He deserves all the slating he gets for doing that frankly. I've done enough rants about bloody cyclists so I won't do one right now.

Needless to say though that - as a pedestrian in London - I hate them with a passion when they think the rules of the road don't apply to them. I hate it even more when they claim that they only do it to stay safe. Praise be to the Daily Mirror! I never thought I would ever say that, and I doubt I will ever say it again.

There were actually quite a few other cyclists caught in the mirror's video shoot breaking exactly the same laws as Cameron.

That said riding a bike the wrong way down a one way street is probably not the most illegal thing many of our fine representatives are up to these days.

You mean the whole thing wasn't just a stunt by Cameron to win over the lycra-wearing lib dem vote?

Going to take up the maracas instead, is she?

"They think the rules of the road don't apply to them." An allegory of politicians.

Great to see a sense of remorse, Dizzy.

Pah. What more do you expect from bloody snow boarders. Stop sitting down in the middle of the piste!

Remorse was achieved by her screaming. I mean REALLY screaming. I believe the words 'if I can't play the fucking piano again you're fucking dead' were uttered. At which point another mutual friend turned to me and said 'I think she's talking to you'

jd said...

Oh, just buy her one of those programmable electronic things which she can play with one finger, and tell her to stop whinging.

I would but she has just threatened me with a reinforced metal cast.
