Britain = shit?


#41

think it’s implied throughout the article

Chinese investors or otherwise, that’s no reason for people to just constantly be cunts and ruin potentially nice things. More bikes in cities = fewer cars = happier world. People are provided with a good bike service, people throw bikes into canals.

People are the worst.

anyway I just don’t like the whole sarcastic hashtag hot take thing, seems rude which is why I waded in.

Sorry about that!

They have these in Milton Keynes now seemed to be going quite well but they need more stations ideally.


#45

To be fair my comment was perhaps a bit reactionary to living in this city.

Of course there is no excuse for ruining things for others.


#46

also really sick and tired of people washing their hands of Britain and othering it as if we’re all so much better and above that.

Guess what British people/people who live in Britain, you are all contributing to this place good or bad.


#47

Agree.


#48

Plenty of evidence that rich people have “bad morals” in this world. Bit insulting and classist to suggest that poor people don’t know how to behave.


#49

I’m fine with it cos they’re shit and everyone hates them


#50

exactly - which was heavily implied in the article.


#51

bit naive if stuff like this isn’t factored into the scheme from the off

like the article says, there’s always the ‘feet on the seats’/entitled types - the journalist should be more annoyed with mobike than with the dude who took the bike for his personal use for not having a useful contingency/more bikes/a better system


#52

Yeah this. It’s supposed to be for flagging when someone’s pretending to have a controversial opinion


#53

^this

Manchester is shit, it’s full of lies. Bald men start their shit, with dead Hacienda cries
