Lorry driver fined for passing too close to cyclist

This from the article made me boggle: "During a safety campaign on the issue, West Midlands Police officers have posed as cyclists to catch drivers."

How do you pose as a cyclist without actually being one?!

That was my thought as well. I guess it was written as something like "pretended to be a central example of a cyclist".

Put a concealed electric motor in the frame, and just move your feet round and round with the pedals rather than actually pushing them to make the bike go. You're then a moped-rider posing as a cyclist.

Maybe they mean the officers were on unmarked bicycles?

Shame he can only be sent down for being a racist and not for being a privileged arse!

The article on adding a security key to your Google account has a serious flaw. It says that any YubiKey will do, but that's not correct. It has to be a model that supports the U2F standard. All of YubiKey's current range will work, but there are plenty of older models that may still be available secondhand or as old stock.

Reminds me of the alt.buddha.short.fat.guy FAQ.

I think the conviction of Philips is very welcome.

I wonder what he might have been convicted of had anyone actually run down Gina Miller or attacked the other person he menaced. It's a bit turbulent priest.
