Contempt for walking and cycling

While politicians of all parties blather emptily about using the car less and cycling and walking more the actual environment for cycling and walking continues to be degraded.

This photo (taken at the Baker's Arms junction) perfectly sums up a culture of insolent indifference to cycling and walking. See if you can spot the cycle lane. As for that hideous new obstruction placed across the pavement on a very busy shopping street. Impudent contempt for pedestrians doesn't get much more overt than this.
