UK - And we think our politicians are bad...

Discussion in 'Politics, Laws, Government & Insurance' started by TonyE, Mar 29, 2010.

  1. A Labour MP has urged people to tell their male loved-ones not to ride motorcycles.
    Huddersfield MP Barry Sheerman called motorcyclists “widow makers and orphan makers” who were “disgraceful in a civilised society”.

    He said: “If you have a husband, boyfriend or son who wants to get a motorbike, please try and persuade them to get something with four wheels instead.”

  2. Hahahahahahahahhaah! Funny stuff.

    This guy is a complete moron. “Widow makers and orphan makers” who were “disgraceful in a civilized society” ? Uh, what?

    I like some of the comments.
  3. That's fine. When I tell people to go to civilized countries worth seeing, the UK doesn't even make the list.
  4. But if you have a wife, girlfriend or daughter who wants to ride, then break out the bubbly and go helmet shopping on the weekend.

    Funny coincidence that his name should be so close to that of Sir Barry Sheene; a man who rode very fast all his life, crashed very fast, and yet died of cancer.
