    are currrently blowing across the dusty plains of 'Campaigning and public policy'. Perhaps the title is putting people off this area a bit...? :biggrin:

    I think that's because no-one is arguing about SS any more. Which, incidentally, also seems to be experiencing tumbleweed since Paul Smith's heart attack.

    So, what shall we campaign about?

    Campaign for speed limiters to be fitted to PS's ambulance?

    Prhaps they could change the title to..."Spire, Bonj and Mr Paul":ohmy::biggrin:
    That should clear the Tumbleweed.

    I suggest the 'Campaign for free beer & bikes' might work

    ah, tumbleweed, is that what it's called. I'd always wondered what those big balls of dusty twigs you see blowing acorss an arid texan village in westerns were.

    SS - no-one agrees, but everyone's got their own opinion of it and it isn't going to change. Future arguments aren't likely to go anywhere because most points have already been raised and already argued to death at some point or other in the past, so further argument is just repetition of old ground.
    Cycle lanes - most people agree that they are shite, but beginner cyclists (supposedly) like them so the government will keep building them to try to encourage people to take up cycling, so not much chance of a campaign to get rid of them working. No argument there then really.

    Maybe we should put all the "When I was cycling along today a car cut me up, blah blah blah, whinge whinge whinge" type posts in here?
    I personally think commuting should be for advice on commuting, and pleasant tales, not rambling accounts of battles with 'motons'.
    Chat/cafe is for pleasant tales and advice on things other than cycling.
    Soapbox for rants, whinging, non-pleasant tales and arguments about things other than cycling.
    Campain for rants, whinging, non-pleasant tales and arguments about cycling?
    Possibly involving renaming the forums to reflect this?
