that we have two such prominent cyclists in positions of power, and both of them Old Etonions too.
I love it, especially as it pisses off so many yoghurt knitters
How do you knit yoghurt?
In the same way as you grind your own sandles.
I think it's an skill that you acquire the second you start giving a toss about anyone other than yourself.
Um, it would be even greater if I knew who you're referring to...
Boris Johnson, David Cameron. Oh and 14 of Cameron's front bench. In fact, a tidy percentage of the next govt. All went to Eton.
What chance have you got against a tie and a crest...?
It's yoghurt weavers... and muesli knitters. Alexei Sayle BTW - great stuff.
He doesn't read the Guardian, he wasn't to know.
Eton's motto is "Cabinet makers to the Queen."
They aren't cyclists. They are twats on bikes. There is a difference.
I always heard that as 'What chance have you got against the tired oppressed.' It never seemed to make total sense to me.
One man's cyclist is another man's twat on a bike. I don't think we should introduce spurious cyclist differences here.
The second part of Grumpy Goat's statement is pretty hard to dispute! But yes, once you start trying to define what constitutes a 'real' cyclist as opposed to a POB then the ice under your feet starts to creak alarmingly.
