According to the BBC and other news sources, David Cameron has had his bicycle stolen.
The leaders of the Conservatives should have read this article on how to keep crims away from his “old friend,” which was attached to a bollard.
UPDATE: I’ve just had this email from the Dutch tourist board…
The Dutch Tourist Board would like to donate a brand new self-locking Dutch bicycle as a replacement for David Cameron’s bicycle that was stolen in London on Wednesday evening.
The Conservative leader says he left his locked bicycle outside a supermarket in West London while he shopped. On leaving the store, David Cameron then realised that it had been stolen.
Throughout Holland, travelling by bicycle is the norm. 16 million people own approximately 12 million bicycles and the Dutch use the bicycle as a regular means of transportation rather than just a recreational sport. You will find clearly marked cycle routes (direction pointers with red lettering on white) throughout Holland. There are many special lanes and paths for cyclists (with a total length of approximately 17,000 kilometres).
