Brian Coleman AM: 'tedious cock'

Well, Mark Thomas' demo seems to have gone ok, shame I couldn't make it. I'm so looking forward to moving to London. Anyway, how about this as a reaction?
But the protest has had its critics, with Tory London Assembly member Brian Coleman calling them "sad, mad and bad".

"Is this really the image we want to give of London - tourists whose income we rely on for the jobs and prosperity of our city?"
Well no you fool. That's the whole damned point!

Ye gods, this sort of thing is bad for the image of London because it highlights the absurdity of the laws that affect London. Remove the stupid law and you're fine. Gah!

As Liadnan puts it:
"Bugger civil liberties, think of the tourist trade?" And in what universe would the tourist trade be adversely affected?

What a tedious cock.
Still busy, distracted and not in the mood for serious blogging. Week off next week, might, hopefully, clear my head. In the meantime, I await the reports of the event from those that were able to attend.

Coleman has just been done for drink-driving. And this, in a borough where the tories have got rid of all of the traffic calming measures (no speed bumps, no bin-lid roundabouts, no other stuff to make people drive more slowly).

How will people driving like wankers attract tourists? (I suppose it never did Athens or Rome any harm....)

Actually accidents have dropped in Barnet Surprisingly (There are chicanes etc and electronic slow down signs instead) It saves deranged drivers seeing if they can take the speed hump at 40 MPH alla Streets of San Francisco style, like some kind of take off ramp. Or Bozos driving straight over the pretend roundabouts.
