motorised vehicles LB,
Doesn't apply to e-bikes so don't see why e-scooters should/would be any different
Ah but the argument shouldn’t be ‘it doesn’t apply to e-bikes” because if a bike or a scooter has a motor then they should be liable for MOTOR tax

Austin Healey as the face of an ad about online hate. Stop being such a little penis Austin if you don't want hate.

Wow! A lot of hate right there.

I like Austin, he's fun, he can take and give the banter. Always ragging on the fatties. He is also an excellent co comms.
He's biased but so what, aren't we all.
You know I'm going to lose,
And gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like it baby, I don't want to live FOREVER!

Hate's a bit strong, I enjoy slagging him though.

Being serious, in the lineup of people speaking in the ads he does kind of stand out. Not just because he's a white, hetero, man and thus extremely far down the list of people likely to suffer serious abuse online, but because he spends so much of his time using the word fat as a term of abuse. I know context, context, but it's relentless from him and it normalises an insult which can have serious impacts on people. Actual vulnerable people. He's not exactly taking the position of relative power he Inhabits seriously with regards to preventing online abuse.

Utter nonsense. We get the most but its not recognised as abuse.
Even you sexually bodyshaming a rugby pundit is ok it seems.

Look him up online and the first hit I saw wasthe Daily Heil slavering over his six-pack. He's fine.

All this pontificating from you, a little penis shamer.
