Anyone for a game of ‘Frank Ross “All Cyclists Are….” Bingo’?
The confrontational businessman, Frank Ross, who is the leader of the SNP in the Edinburgh City Council doesn’t like ‘cyclists’. He does like witnessing and cataloging unacceptable behaviour by some people on bikes and seems to enjoy blaming all people who ride bikes for those individuals actions.
These narrow minded views are usually reserved for the comments sections of Facebook but Frank is a policy maker.
They are also very dangerous views as they legitimise and fuel the aggression and violence dished out to innocent law abiding people on bikes by people in cars.
Last week it seemed he had changed his ways as he used the word “some”. Was he starting to see ‘cyclists’ as individuals? Nope. Only ‘drivers’ are afforded that luxury.
Anyway, now for some fun and a game of ‘Frank Ross “All Cyclists Are. ….” Bingo’. See how many times Frank can demonise everyone who rides a bike.
Still not called “Bingo”? Might as well throw this old bahoo in then:
FRANK ROSS BINGO UPDATE!
Frank seemed to have been quiet for a while. I thought his prejudices had mellowed, until this the other day. Is Frank again suggesting cyclists should be licensed in a scheme similar to many schemes around the world? Schemes which have failed and wasted tax payers money?
Why not just give a description of the person, the same as you would when witnessing any other instance of anti-social behaviour?
