Default South Tyneside Transport Study

CAUTION POLITICS ALERT:

There was an article in the Journal (local rag) yesterday telling us all about South Tyneside Councils study into ways of reducing the no of cars on the boroughs roads. They mentioned a conference that interested parties such as the police, Nexus, Taxi groups, cyclists organisations and disabled groups amongst others would be attending. No mention of mobycycles, so I e-mailed the councillor in charge and she's had someone to contact me with a view to putting forward motorcyclists views to the committee. I've e-mailed the NE MAG Rep and the nearest BMF rep but no luck as yet, does anyone have any ideas who preferably localish could elloquently represent the views of motorcyclists in a formal political situation such as this?

I's gonna look a right donkey having berated them for forgetting about us if no one is willing to go along.

If Jimmy Moonlight cant speak for you nobody can.

with a bit of effort he can manage to string a few words together.

sometimes, even in English.

Wot fettl SS2.............YOU LITTLE VIRGIN YOU!!! well nearly, which is close enough..............any old port in dirty weather.....yo ho ho pass the barrel n all that ol' bollocks.............

I be JIMMYMOONLITE, aka EverReady and latterly BIGGUS DICKUS...........don't ask me, ask Grav.................

A wordsmith I am, indeed I have ranted, raged, talked bullshit and occasionally, just occasionally shed illuminating and lucid comment on events which get me all atremble. I have often ranted far into the night.............mostly to meself............

Anyrode, unfortunately I am an ethnic geordie residing in the south (the independant Islamic State of Banburistan) and am not where my heart is, i.e. up the TOON where I am proud to be numbered a prince among kings.

Whilst quite able to talk the legs off a Pompey lady of easy and negotiable virtue and wipe my rather ample posterior with politicians and their double talk, being "doon heor" rather than "up theor" means I am not au fait with things motasickle up in God's Country.

However, GEORDIE MAG meet at the AVALON HOTEL WHITLEY BAY but I dunno when, if you ring the AVALON and ask to speak to MICK who is the main man there he will put you in touch with the right people.

Hope that helps bonny lad/bonny lass/ hinny, keep us up to speed on your progress yeah??

And meanwhile, peace, love and many blessings....................

Aye.................

Jimmy Ever Biggus Moonlite Ready Dickus (no I'm not a Catholic............otherwise I would be Aloysius Pius John Paul O' Reilly)

Right, its time for a spliff and a soothing soak in me auld tin bath...............mebbe even get wor lass to scrub me bits..................."MOTHER!!!...........WHERE' S THE BLOODY LOOFAH???......................"
