RoadCC just did an article on this today. Evo Lucas has unearthed and screengrabed the blog. I wonder if said material is winging its way to the Met?

He had a short 'article' at http://rabbit2020.blogspot.co.uk/2015/02/cyclists-are-their-own-worst-enemy.html which appears to have since been deleted. Google has it cached but it's pretty standard ill-informed stuff.

"Observing the highway code drivers have to pass their driver test and then pay £125 to the DVLA depicting a badge within the front windscreen that they are licensed to drive a vehicle. ''Superhighways are not the answer'' proposed throughout London as a means to an end to avoid cycle deaths. Legislation should be introduced for cycle users to be registered and pass the highway code and pay £125 the same as drivers. Cyclists jump lights, give no signals as to their intentions to drivers and cycle within the middle of the road instead of single file by the kerb."

His ramblings are very poorly written. Here's another pearl of wisdom from him; cyclists' deaths are due to their 'incompetentance'.

"Cyclists blame everyone except themselves for accidents on the roads or even deaths as cyclists are Incapable in following the highway code and giving the appropriate hand signals to the traffic coming up behind themselves on the roads.
...

Cyclists jump red lights and even ride on pavements with impunity and think wrongly of course that they are above the law and, oh we must have the cycle super-highways orbiting the London and the surrounding areas, what a load of rubbish and a complete waste of money.
We are all born and learn how to walk and talk by our parents and hopefully acquire the right intuition to be able to talk effectively between our parents and then in the workplace and so, the same can be said for riding a cycle on the road.
(WTF does that sentence mean?)

Cycling by the edge near the pavement and observing the highway code otherwise there will be more untimely deaths on the roads from their incompetentance. The re-introduction of the Cycling Proficiency Test should be enshrined in Law with immediate effect and should become a criminal offence not to have passed your cycling test and to wear your badge with pride as a capable road user."

I do wonder if the guy has some form of aspergers syndrome or something? He has fluent vocabulary skills yet seems fixed on some specifics he cant see past.
