From what others are saying you Tim Purcell have hijacked many threads with unreasonable anti cycling rants. Do you have any co supporters? Doesn't seem so. If you are going to make stupid posts such as ' the whole area needs to be put under a cycling ban' , then expect an appropiate response to such an idiotic suggestion . I will not be responding to any more of your abusive messages .

I also Drive and Ride. You could not gun it down Mill Street, make the corner and hit 50 mph on Bermondsey Wall West.
Such disproportionate claims undermine your central argument which is surely that all road users should show consideration for others.
Of course the van didn't turn the corner at 40-50mph, that's not possible I witnessed it speeding down Mill Street (passing St Saviours) in the direction of Bermondsey Wall West, I have also regularly witnessed a blue Porsche doing similar speeds but NOT around the corner ! Feel better now it is clarified that the vehicles witnessed did not turn the corner at 40-50mph? Please read Boss St Bloke's latest post.

Now jog on and find someone else to troll . Maybe go and have a coffee with the mad man in St Saviours.
Is it no wonder that only a few people in Southwark use this Community website.. start posting and you feel that you are under immediate attack and that's just from making a simple comment about witnessing a speeding van!
