  • Chris Beazer: No, we remove targets and the "war on the motorist" i.e. actively cut down on the number of speed cameras and, low and behold, vulnerable road user ksis increase. So this is "getting things done"? (30 November 2012)

  • Gerhard Weiss: The problem is that dangerous and intimidating driving is mostly not subject to police enforcement. How many reports of intimidating or dangerous driving are followed up? How many collision... (16 September 2011)

  • Simon Brooke: Agreed. Not only do off road tracks usually cause more danger to cyclists as Chris Beazer suggests, they're also often more poorly surfaced, narrower, shared with pedestrians, and consequently... (21 January 2011)

  • Chris Beazer: "Britain's roads remain the world's safest" - they are NOT the world's safest. They are among the safest IF you are travelling in a metal box, but if you are on foot or cycling, especially if you... (20 January 2011)

  • Chris Beazer: Unfortunately, off road cycle tracks make people "feel" safer, but they are usually between 2 and 3 times as dangerous as on-road cycling. This is because the most likely place for a motorised... (20 January 2011)

  • Richard Shaw: I must say that I am with so many folk in Lewes who are absolutely fed up with Mr Baker's obsession with the Dr Kelly business. Baker has already been very well financially rewarded for his book... (8 March 2010)

  • John Stockdale: Blair supporter, it is perfectly legitimate for an MP to assert that from the evidence so far presented to the Chilcot Inquiry, there's a prima facie case that the former PM misled the House of... (5 December 2009)

  • Blair Supporter: Let's be clear; Mr Baker and his friends and allies - they know who they are - are determined to find Mr Blair guilty of 'war crimes' and a few other 'crimes'. After a few days of the Iraq... (2 December 2009)

  • Chris Beazer: Cycle tracks are NOT safe - research has shown that they are 2 - 3 times more dangerous than cycling along the road. They may make people feel safe, but that is a false impression. Most injuries... (4 July 2009)
