    Trainee solicitor tweets "#bloodycyclists" after hitting cyclist on sponsored ride

    It would seem as if some law students have a wee bit too much sense of privilege... I can't imagine it, myself, but here it is in all it's glory:

    The rider seems a bit too laid back IMHO. What's happened to people in the old sod since I've evacuated to my homeland? Here in the U.S., we would just whip out our weapons, it would seem.

    Posting incriminating data in a public media. I'll bet she didn't finish at the top of her class in law school.

    That's a very sad and scary story. To think that you would brag about something like this reminds me that as a species we've not evolved as far as we might like to think.

    Ya think? lol

    Hey, confirm something here. The article also sez that she posted a pix of her speedo at 95 MPH. Would an auto in England have a speedo calibrated in MPH instead of KPH? I'll admit to utter ignorance on the point.

    Yes, our speed limits are in mph and speedometers show mph as the major figures and kph as minor figures.

    I can't think of anything better than that to say. +1
