Default Tom Sharpe

I bought some books by this author about 35 years ago and I am going
through them again. His view of the entrenched ideas of government
officials, representatives of the legal system and lefty acedemics is
quite hilarious. He observed many of the so-called "woke" ideas that
seem to have sprung to the forefront recently.

The basic plot is that these characters are sexually inadequate misfits
that persist in pushing forward on the basis that if (a) therefore (b).
And that they can brush aside opposition because it's "the law". Clearly
ridiculous but...

....strangely it does put me in mind of someone here.

What does this have to do with UK cycling? Have you considered using "OT"?

There are several regular posters here. If there are more negative
comments, perhaps your suggestion can be considered.

Useful. I did not know this though he does have characters that cycle.
Perhaps there is also a clue in that they don't follow the stereotype of
falling off every time there is a leaf on the road.

Allegedly but with no proof.
