The Times campaign to save cyclists

February 2, 2012

I am pretty sure I should feel very happy about The Times campaign to make cycling safe. However they seem to have forgotten their own hand in the problems for cyclists. So here is what I wrote on their campaign site:

First start would be to look inside The Times.  Jeremy Clarkson and Matthew Parris have both called for cyclists to be maimed for no other reason that being cyclists.

This attitude needs challenging and having powerful figures in the media presenting stupid and dangerous views needs to end. Time for Matthew “Piano Wire” Parris to write a real apology and get onside to change attitudes & Jeremy Clarkson to grow up and realise that cyclists are not the problem and his childish threats have real consequences when acted out by others.

It’s easy to call for change in others but if you are not prepared to change as well those calls will have little impact.
