FOR years, Rory Ward had a memory he just couldn’t puzzle out. In that memory, he was six years old, and standing with his grandfather on the platform of Fangfoss railway station, up on the Yorkshire Wolds. That last ever train on the York to Beverley line ran on the evening of November 27, – fifty years ago today exactly.

Only, the way Nick’s carrying on at the moment, it looks more likely that he’s gonna find himself not in the mayors seat but in jail for stirring up some serious racial hatred at a time when tensions are higher than they’ve been in a generation. Just check out the rhetoric: Think of the shame of the Establishment, who have ignored this systematic abuse of our innocent children and even tried to jail me for speaking out about it in two gruelling trials in Leeds Crown Court in Except that our recollection of those riots revealed an awful lot of white faces mixed up in the melee.
And as for Muslim paedophile gangs, we’ve never seen the slightest evidence that Asians have demonstrated a greater propensity for illegal “grooming” than any other demographic. But what’s it all got to do with British classic biking? Well, quite a lot actually.

At the short stop in Marlborough I had a walk round but was very glad to reach Endless Street bus station, which incidentally the asset strippers are going to sell now.
