Hate crime

This wasn’t robbery or a sexual assault. Could it possibly be related to James Martin and to the culture of hatred of cyclists which is stoked by the media?

A CYCLIST was attacked with pepper spray by three thugs while riding through Chiswick.

The woman in her late 30s was cycling down Church Street at 12.30am on October 2, when one of the three white men sprayed her in the eyes with what the victim described as pepper spray.

The three suspects then walked away leaving the woman in agony


The Press Complaints Commission has cleared TV chef James Martin of any wrongdoing over a newspaper column in which he proclaimed his hatred of cyclists and said he had caused a group of riders to crash.
