A balanced view from Worcester News .... not

by veseunr   November 13, 2013  

Possibly the chief editor should consider this 'journalist's' position. Nice balanced reporting makes the Daily Mail look reasonable.

Feel free to write to Worcester News to call for this guys sacking .... I have.

This reads like a piece in the Onion. Breaking News, Mr. Connell: I can go as fast Bradley Wiggins*

*just not for as far.

Between the S and the LOW

If you don't then the next time some twat in an Audi shouts "Oi pay your road tax" then don't complain.

If you don't speak out against such idiotic opinions you might as well condone them.

Another Jeremy Clarkson wannabe stirring up stuff to get his name out there. Hope it backfires and he's sacked.

It's nothing more than an 'opinion piece' designed to get people reading online in my view. His editor will be pleased and so will the big cheeses at Vacuum4 u.com and PW Jones coaches. They could only dream of the publicity! Mr Connell you have succeeded.

You have also succeeded in propagating the petty small minded, ignorant lazy attitudes that can lead to the tensions we all see and fear on the roads between cars and bikes. His views appear to be formed solely on the basis that he probably is a bit scared to wear lycra, looks a bit podgy, was spooked by a cyclist riding ON A CYCLE PATH!! and feels he needs to jump on the DM anti-cycling bandwagon as its the thing to do.

Finally, as with all of these daft wrongheaded articles he extrapolates things to a ridiculous degree to make sure you are still paying attention. 'Oh, and no horses, or wheelchairs, or women..... etc etc. Great work!

Get back to reporting on school fates and minor criminal damage Mr Connell. Bah!
