You are allowed to cycle 70 miles and have a 15 minute rest in the middle - as usual in their hurry to besmirch him they made themselves look like fools.......................again

FFS, it's not about whether he "broke the rules" or not.

It's about what's sensible - and being PM his behaviour should be beyond reproach and setting an example, not providing another reason for Boris-bashing by doing something which could be perceived as iffy.
The fact that this has caused controversy is a clear indication that once again he hasn't thought his actions through.

How did he get there anyway?
Downing Street won't confirm if he was driven there, which speaks volumes to me.

Which, following that logic, we should consider the PM as a non-human piece of equipment supplied by HM Govt for the purposes of placing in shop windows and nothing else.

As usual the media vultures are out to get Boris. Granted he could have gone for a bike ride closer to Westminster but what's the big deal? We get cobs (c*nts on bikes) riding out from the local towns, Abergavenny, Hereford, Ross on Wye, all around 15 miles away, through our village and out to the Black Mountain foothills all the time, more so during lockdowns than ever. Some are in groups of 6 or even 8 riders, feck all said about them on the local news or in the paper.
My questions to the Boris knockers are these. Could you do his job? Can you honestly think of anyone else who could do it better? Can you name anyone more dedicated to pulling us out of the shit that is covid19? If you can step forward into the public limelight, if you can't, shut the feck up. It's only a bloke having a bit of leisure time riding round on his pushbike. Fecking journo's, hardly a decent human among them. Rant over..

You threw the hook out without any bait - but I'm going to bite anyway. And yes, I'm a true blue, through and through.
I'm not (always) a Boris knocker, but here's my answers to your questions. I've probably already had a Covid tot too many today, so that's maybe why I'm biting, but I hope you weren't completely sober either!
1. No I could not do his job, and I wouldn't want to.
2. With the benefit of my hindsight mirror, and my supplementary crystal ball, I think that Dominic Raab, the Gover, and Jeremy Hunt would have been better choices for PM. Grant Schapps (spelling?) also comes across as a good mover - certainly one to watch for the future.
3. Regarding anyone being more dedicated to pulling us out of the shit. Well, there are any number of MP's who are dedicated, but are they up to it (competence) is the question. Boris does himself and the Party no favours on how he's handled it. Here's just a quick reminder - too slow to act imposing lockdown; handshakes, mixing, etc., with all and sundry - until he caught it; discharging Covid patients to OAP's homes; PPE not available; no border (airport) controls); test and trace - total world-beating joke; over promising on many things - ad infinitum............
It's not just Boris, of course, but the 'system' and who he's surrounded himself with. He's taken nepotism to new levels. He's got people on the front bench, most of whom have never had a proper job and never lived in the real world eg. public school, university, political researcher or investment banker, then bingo, into parliament!
4. Unfortunately, people won't shut the fcuk up - one of the major benefits of living in a freedom of speech democracy. This adds to many essential checks and balances of any government.
5. No, his bike ride was not just a bloke having a bit of leisure time. It was an idiotic act from someone who should be setting an example. It smacked of the 'them and us' / 'do as I say, not as I do' brigade. You only need to look back at Jenrick and Cummings to see how his mates treated the first lockdown with contempt. Look also, at any number of the rich and famous (?!) who think that they can do as they please - premiership footballers, film / Tv personnel, etc. What about Boris' dad? A prized cnut if ever there was one. He's been caught disobeying covid rules on many occasions, and I note that he's already had his second Covid jab. How did that happen? Methinks another example of 'entitlement'.
6. I won't be the first to spring to the defence of journos. During my working life, I had to deal with them on a regular basis. Yes, there are undoubtedly some arseholes, but most are decent, hardworking people. Without their input - good and bad, we would hardly be informed, and the duffers would be able to get away with a lot more than they already do.
Hey, I could go on, but it's time for another tot. It will all eventually come out in the wash-up when the public enquiry gets underway. The only problem will be, that the enquiry will take several years to report, by which time Boris and his incompetents will have retired on gold plated pensions - but some will still be raking it in the Upper Chamber.

Whilst I respect your views MB, I don't think things would get better if Boris decided 'feck it I'm resigning.'
Granted hell of a lot of people are dying daily, but that is mainly down to those that don't take this pandemic seriously and if the politicians had the freedom to tell the truth about which sections of the community these people are things might take a turn for the better. Boris might not be perfect, far from it and you've mentioned other politicians that could possibly step up to the plate, but Jeremy Hunt?

Me.

I could have driven 7 miles to Dartmoor and ridden my bike around for a bit - but I didn't because I'm more dedicated to the cause of staying home, protecting the NHS and saving lives than Bojo is.

It’s caused controversy only because the media and the BBC especially, wanted it to - some bloke goes for a bike ride for SEVEN miles and the media behave like he’s had a couple of babies for breakfast - fooking pathetic -
I don’t even get my lycra out for less than 20 miles and on my travels round the byeways of Yorkshire I pass loads more on their bikes - never seen a photographer though

Bbc journo asked Boris if his journey to visit a hospital or some such was necessary. Boris should have asked the bbc tosser what he was doing there.

But he didn't go for a bike ride for 7 miles.

He was driven for 7 miles to ride his bike round a park for a bit and then driven back for 7 miles*

*Probably.
Downing Street still won't confirm how he got there.
Draw your own conclusions.
