Con Yer Bike Cameron

Writing about web page http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/tm_objectid=17004435&method=full&siteid=94762&headline=exclusive--con-yer-bike-cameron-name_page.html

David Cameron's 'green credentials' take a panning from the Daily Mirror with the inspired headline above.

DAVID Cameron flaunts his green credentials by cycling to work – but there's a flunky following behind in a gas–guzzling motor carrying his shoes and briefcase.

Smart blogging London–based bike shop and courier company Velorution write to Cameron offering to deliver his briefcase and shirt carbon-free.

Or maybe he should just get some panniers or a rucksack? Or maybe the flunky should get a bike and some bags, so that young David can continue to look good for the cameras? Or a tandem, so that the flunky can carry the bags carbon–free?

    the sheer amount of paper in politicians briefcases must surely justify them needing a car to carry it. all the politicians i can think of have at least a jag..

  2. Private Eye that I picked up today:

    NumberCrunching:

    4 Kilometres of ice that have melted from the Scott–Turner Glacier in Norway.

    34,298 Kilogrammes of carbon dioxide produced by flying David Cameron and his 10 advisors to go and look at it.

  3. "the sheer amount of paper in politicians briefcases must surely justify them needing a car to carry it. all the politicians i can think of have at least a jag."

    Or two jags? Anonymous, I trust that your tone here is ironic?

    Thanks Gavin. Typically funny Private Eye comment.

  4. It tells you something about the mirror that in one of the worst weeks for Labour in 9 years they choose to concentrate on the fact that Cameron cannot carry all his paperwork with him on his bike.
