In an astonishing admission today, Conservative leader David Cameron apologised to his fellow cyclists for obeying the Highway Code.
"I would like to make clear that it will never happen again," he said, carefully extracting an onion from his pocket. "I know I will have brought shame on all my fellow cyclists who don't believe the laws of the road apply to them and I am deeply sorry."
Mr Cameron vowed to mend his ways in future, and continued: "I am very glad that 'Cyclists' Monthly' is watching over me to ensure that I do not transgress again.
Tim Montgomerie is 94.
UPDATE: A few days ago I was about to cross the road from Parliament Square to Birdcage Walk, when a cyclist came flying round the corner totally ignoring the red light. I shouted out to her (see, it wasn't Dave!) that the law applied to her too. She turned round and gave me the finger!
