i know its a cycling race but......
Probably chav scum.
My mate is doing the race-hope he is ok.
Did the first Grand Union Canal 1/2M a few years ago and some morons stole all the water from one of the water stations-unf*ckingbelievable!
It's an out of proportion response, but I imagine that you're far more shafted in Pitlochry if the roads are closed than you are in London...
..and then impaled on a rusty spike...
...and then something really nasty!
sounds like a fate worse than a fate worse than death.
How about cleaning the portaloos out after the VLM or GNR?
Linky linkety link
... and then after that they should be shot. And survivors shot again!
Three hours of road closure one day a year doesn't seem excessive to me.
Doesn't seem excessive to me, either (3 hours' road closures), but people do tend to get awfully hot under the collar about these things. I grew up in Reading and, despite being pretty much blocked in by the half marathon every year, it never bothered me at all; the festival causes far more disruption than the road race! However, there was usually at least one Moaning Myrtle writing into the local rag, and we get the same thing in Bristol when they close the Portway for road races.
"Peter Hounam, a member of the Anti Closed Road Event group and local businessman distanced himself from the sabotage but called for the race to be held on open roads because it impeded churchgoers"
not a very Christian way to act.... (orwhichever churchgoers were impeded)
and I didn't realise its for Macmillan,
although they have distanced themselves from any direct action...
They may have distanced themselves from the direct action, but that sounds a bit hollow when they've got this in their manifesto:
"People will not stand idly by if road closures... ...are imposed on this community..."
