Well, unless you were the man on th bike, that is.

Were you?


It seems you haven't watched the video.


Nugent doesn't need to watch the video.
The prime directive of Nugentworld is 'Cyclists can do no right, motorists can do no wrong'.

I think Nugent is the poster that has said on occasion that he/it
doesn't click video links.

Indeed. Slight correction though. 'Cyclists are always wrong...'

When I used to read his tedious prattlings, he used to feign a lot of things and not clicking links WAS one of them, but then he'd trip himself up by describing the video's contents!

Remembrance day is almost upon us. I am compiling a list of those fallen from this group.

Paul Smee
Died from heart attack induced by cancer

Mike Ellwood, Abbingdon
Look him up in the New Scientist archives

Rolf Mantel
No Idea

David Bunny
A failed Southampton Uni student who said bicycles should be limited to 20mph whilst boasting how he cycled at 30mph to catch a train. Became a London bus driver and boasted how he used his bus as a weapon to punish cyclists who would no let him pull out from a bus stop, apparently cyclists were supposed to read his ‘mind’ and anticipate when he would turn on his right indicator.

Connor Turton
A lorry driver who boasted that he was forced to accept a 50pence/hour pay rise because lorry drivers were indispensable, then got made redundant. Also said that he only let his indicator flash a maximum of 4 times before changing lanes and woe betide any motorists who ignored this warning.

McKev
Another lorry ‘driver’ who lost his one and only shirt by selling his ‘house’ and renting a bedsit because he ‘thought’ he knew how the property market would swing.

Steve Firth
A full time farmer in Hampshire and a full time olive farmer in Italy and a Full time Airline pilot and A full time Air Traffic Controller and a Full Time Motorway Patrol Officer and worked Full Time in the M25 control room. On Saturdays he personally sold his produce in 200 Farmers Markets from Salisbury to St Petersburg.
Complained about cyclists riding the wrong way in one-way streets whilst telling us cyclists should ride in the gutter against the flow of traffic.

Dave the Medway Handyman
Despite digging ditches at sub minimum wage all 18 of Dave’s children went to Eton and then either Harvard or Sorbonne.

Hugh (Huge) Davies
Not a bad chap despite his habit of eating Range Rovers.

Colin Bignel
Resurfaced here a while back.
Complained about people using pseudonyms whilst signing himself Nightjar.


‘J’ Nugent
Told us trains should stop at level crossings until the driver operated a ‘manual device’ with the condition that the ‘manual device’ could not be operated if it would inconvenience a motorist.. Which means trains could be delayed for weeks or even years.


Any others?

Also he told us that people in cars NEVER drive along a footpath except to access a house driveway.

Oh, hello. You have a serious problem if you can't come back after a

What are you talking about (assuming you know)?

Why should I do as you say?


Now you think a comment about your behaviour is a command to do something.


You seem to have "a thing" about my occasional breaks from usenet, don't
you?

For a start, you appear to believe that you have some rights not to have
certain of your posts answered after a certain number of hours or days
have elapsed.

Now... back to the canal boat man...
You seem to have forgotten the accusations made by the pedestrian
against cyclists.


I haven't forgotten that some people have a large imaginary bee in
their bonnet. And that you can't distinguish between the general and
the particular.


The man in the video was on the spot. He is in a better position to
judge what is happening than you are.
Well, unless you were the man on th bike, that is.

I have, though it was a fair while back (more than two weeks, certainly).

Not always, by any means.

As an example, I was, overtaken (on the correct offside) by a fully
Lycrad-up cyclist on the Amalfi coast road (SS163) early last week.

He did everything perfectly correctly.

We subsequently overtook each other several times serially, according to
road conditions and the varying speed limit. We and other road-users
shared the road as we are all supposed to.

I found it amusing and reflected that in the UK, a cyclist in such a
situation would probably ride in an aggressively confrontational manner,
trying to prevent himself from being overtaken.

Don't be so stupid. I have every right to comment on your weird behaviour.

If you think that my only options are sitting in front of a computer 7/7
or taking a usenet-compatible machine with me wherever I am in the
world, you are seriously weird.
