The news that London will 'road test' Dutch roundabout systems has evoked outrage from Mary Whitehouse, daughter of famous prude, Mary Whitehouse. Interviewed earlier today, the spinster do-gooder stated, 'Oh no, I won't let London fall for this one again. I may have been duped into accepting a 'Dutch oven' when my own 2 hobbed Electrolux broke down in 1991, and yes, I was cruelly tricked into taking part in a group orgy when I thought I was being offered a free copy of 1980s hardcore punk band The Circle Jerks. And then there were the 'chocolate starfish', 'Flangipan finger', and 'Bird's custard' incidents of the late nineties when I visited Keith Floyd's restaurant in Bristol. All in all it sickens me to think that yet another double entendre is going to make a fool of our great capital. When I think of the writing bodies and all that sticky residue, I'm just glad my mother isn't alive today.'
The Transport Secretary, however, commented, 'It's a simple segregation system where a separate route for cyclists increases saftey for all road users. If Ms. Whitehouse would like to sit down and discuss her concerns, I'm sure we can find a compromise over Hobnob or even a creamed horn.'
The debate continues.
