On yer bike vs. kick a bike

Big Society – on yer bike

Broken society – kick a bike

A man was arrested after attacking one of Boris Johnson’s new London hire bicycles yesterday.

The 23-year-old began kicking one of the bikes, telling bystanders he was angry at losing his phone.

He was taken to a police station in Shoreditch, East London at 2.30am, and released on bail.
