I do that every time I pass a cyclist.


I leave a couple of metres. Is that not what the Highway Code
recommends? It's about 50 years since I last studied it in any
detail.

Two metres is fine.

QUOTE:

According to the new law to protect cyclists, the driver needs to
leave a minimum distance from a cyclist when overtaking or travelling
alongside the bike or they could receive a fine. This would be £100
and three points on the licence for being too close to a bike on the
road.

So, how close is too close? According to experts, the recommended
distance between car and cyclist is 1.5 metres. If you are caught
within this distance, then you face the potential of a fine and
points on your licence, to the same value as speeding. This has
replaced the previous recommendation in the Highway Code which merely
said that drivers should leave 'plenty of room' when overtaking
someone on a bike.

ENDS.

Should not a problem as most cyclists are on the footpath anyway.


Waiting for your blood-dripping sharpened battleaxe.

Who uses a blunt battleaxe?


Executioner's axes were usually blunt instruments that crushed the victims neck and tore the head from the body by brute force.


I think that would be an appropriate instrument for Pounder's purposes.

Yes, I think that instrument would work also.

The Chopping Block refers to the wooden block where the condemned would put their chin in the curved notch with their shoulders behind the block. That way the executioner could not miss the neck.

Fortunately we, as a society, evolved beyond this before bicycles and traffic light were invented.
So Pounder can stop rubbing his 'Chisel'.

A Bull's penis was used as a flogging device, called a Pizzle.
Maybe that it what Pounder aspires to.

That sounds like him.
The Romans had a heavy spear called a pilum, but I bet Pounder prefers
the pizzle.
