    From my experience, the number people getting around London using scooters has increased quite a bit over the past year or so.

    I think this is the first time someone in the public eye has been seen using them:

    If you ask me, it's a very undignified method of transport (the same is true in the case of bicycles).

    Cars ftw!

    I ride a scooter. Tbh, since when did it become socially acceptable to decide what modes of transport are socially acceptable? If you don't want to ride a scooter then don't, your opinion on others doing so is completely irrelevant. Scooters are practical, fun, and safe, unlike public transport, driving and cycling (in big cities at any rate). Also, and primarily, they're cheap and portable. No wasting hours of your life chaining them up or filling them with petrol.

    Scooters were kinda in fashion during the late 90s, then disappeared for a while (from my observations, anyway). Over the past couple of years they've come back big time, and I personally think that the world would be a better place if everyone rode a scooters. Everyone would have hardened ankles after taking knocks from the bloody things when they swing around unexpectedly, and it's impossible to look angry while riding a scooter.

    She looks like she's having fun, and why not? I want to see Gove turning up to Westminster on a longboard, and Ummuna blading around Downing Street during his lunchbreak. Politics would be a lot more fun if extreme sports were thrown into the mix. **** the Mercedes, take your banana board to work!
