Unlucky Tory leader suffers second cycle theft in a year

David Cameron’s bike stolen – again

According to this report in the Guardian, Conservative leader David Cameron has suffered at the hands of bike thieves this week.

The Tory leaders bike was chained to railings outside his house and went missing within an hour after being locked up.

The Prime Minister hopeful has had an unfortunate cycling year – his bike was stolen in July 2008, though that was eventually returned after the Dutch Tourist Board offered him a new self-locking replacement

Robert Logie of Studio Moderna the company behind the BigFish folder recommended to the Conservative MPs office: "What David needs is a folding bike that he can take INSIDE with him and not have to leave it chained up anywhere at the mercy of thieves.

"His office got back to me and stated they thought it was a great idea, and put it to his private secretary Laurence Mann. Who subsequently phoned me back and very appreciatively and graciously explained they couldn’t accept gifts…"
Maybe Cameron should have taken a look at the BikeBiz Security Sector Guide?
