Matthew Parris in his Times column today posted a brief apology for his Christmas attack on cyclists. (See my post yesterday.)
Today Parris wrote:
“I offended many with my Christmas attack on cyclists. It was meant humorously but so many cyclists have taken it seriously that I plainly misjudged. I am sorry.”
Not much, but he did admit to a misjudgment, I’ll take it. Thank you Mr. Parris.
It just goes to show cyclists as a world wide group, do have a voice. When we all come together as in this case, it is a loud voice indeed and people can't help but hear it.
Let’s hope lessons have been learned and some good will come out of this. Maybe Matthew Parris and some of his fellow journalists will at least tone it down in the future.
