The year is 2150. The United States managed to survive climate change and has converted all of their infrastructure over to the bicycle.

Brititsh behavioural psychologist Steve Martin carried out trial with US bus drivers that showed paying them $100 a month for not tailgating, not close passing cyclists, worked wonders!

Since 2017, have issued licences to kill 7000 Herring Gulls. That's 5% of the entire UK breeding population. Disturbing. They have promised me an example of why they approved the wholesale slaughter of this Red Listed species. via

Also, the long waits encourage pedestrians to cross in gaps between the traffic (dodgy) and then later drivers are held up by a red light with no one crossing (so encouraging short term frustration & longer term disregard for red lights - double dodgy). Dysfunctional approach.

I think everyone is missing the point. None of this stuff matters to his base if anything it boosts his image as 'not of of the elite' - just like none of the stuff about Trump mattered to his base. All of Johnson's behaviour now is straight out of the Trump playbook.

Straight out the Trump playbook, where he walked behind Clinton when she was speaking, if you can talk over them, unsettle the speaker & distract the audience from their words by weird behaviour. Pity the labour guy allowed Johnson to unnerve him.

Perhaps NDA is a type of drug. An addictive one for certain types of people, it seems.

I haven't made any 'cyclists are saintly & motorists are bad' argument so that's a straw man. I'm just trying to get you to articulate what you meant by 'at the expense of ...'. In these 2 tweets the only thing you say is problems with 'dangerous & careless cycling'. Is that it?

Everything that's wrong with walking and cycling in the UK in one video. The video length says it all.

By 'comes at the expense' of pedestrians & drivers do you mean they have to take account of the presence of cyclists rather than ignore them & treat them as unwanted trespassers as is the case, as I'm sure you'll recall, in the UK? If not, in what is it 'at the expense of ...'?

Dear Boris, Shouting "fuck the families!" about the 7/7 dead isn't the best way to endear yourself to voters again. (I think it's safe to say Brian Coleman buried the lede somewhat in his memories of working with Boris as Mayor)

Good to have chance to challenge John Humphries on use of “sacrifice”: “What’s sacrificing about having cheaper public transport? What’s sacrificing about having every home in Britain properly insulated? The Green transformation is good for social justice & for environment too”

You mean that most MEPs vote to support the legislation (as amended) and as they are in a majority that annoys you because you think democracy means that your NO vote should override the majority view.

Is cycling so privileged in the Netherlands that it makes walking harder? For instance when people have to cross the cycleways? New post:

Twitter may not be ideal for nuanced points, but is useful for spreading experience widely.I appreciate having your experience. Trams being a *thing* in UK predates Edinburgh tram. it's a pity the way UK organizes transport projects is in isolated silos rather than as integrated.
