Poking the cyclists hornet nest is great fun, their sting is ineffectual, nay, non-existent, but the annoying buzzing sounds that usually ensue when they're disturbed can be maddening.

I got that "Common Law, right to travel", from the attached website.
Feel free to pick it to pieces, I know that I can trust you to do it fairly, and with your customary panache.
Thanks for the link, Tom.
It's after dinner, and I've spent five hours travelling home from work today, so I'm not as sharp as sometimes but, looking at that stuff, it looks like the petitioner is asserting the common law right, but that the responses (eg 87608 Kenneth Heskin.pdf) point out the permissory nature of the license, and add extra responsibilities to tax the vehicle as appropriate.
I can't see that they confirm they confirm the 'common law' right that 'Kenneth Heskin' asserts, nor any other right. Have I missed something?
You're kidding right?
This is where I play the "Wot me guv? card, I'm just a dumb ex-taxi driver, ask boroughonian or Paramount, I took you guys to be the brains around here, oh and ZoŽ too.

I was inspired and got off the bus and walked, arriving 20 minutes late at my appointment, but who cares, the person I was meeting didn't. Walking is the future.
