If he does go down I won't weep any tears but I wouldn't advocate a custodial sentence.

Arrogant? Undoubtedly. But he is young and will re-enter society and I can't see time at Her Majesty's Pleasure increasing his chances of making a success of that. And it to all our benefits that he should.

Of course some will say but what about 'Pour Encourager les Autres.' Well, given the views expressed by some of the 'Autres' on here, I think there is fat chance of any 'getthef**koutofmyway' cyclists changing their spots.
