This may not surprise you ! During the period of the " Cities fit for Cycling " campaign , i have virtually daily tried to find the way to leave " comments " on The Times particularly encouraging people to read my blogs which are a series of articles on " Cycling and Road Safety matters " !
So far i have " pledged Support for the Campaign and even put the " Logo " on each blog , in the prime position ! Further i have commented to other well known Blogs to give the " Logo detail" so that they can copy and Paste to their blogs !
Reading : http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/public/cyclesafety/article3309117.ece i see that it is not updated since the 4th Feb !
Some occasions whilst attempting to reach the " Comments " or the intro point to leave a Story , i get a box asking for £ 2 a month , guess what !
the times are seeking to turn this Campaign to their financial benefit !
Another time i saw that only those registered with the Times can access the " Stories " !
Perhaps someone will assist me to get my Point of View across since i am in Austria on a low Broadband access ( 16bits/sec ) and seeing the same story in a round the houses series is totally frustrating !
My blogs can be found by Googling : " Parrabuddy & Skippydetour " as can my Twitter.com/skippydetour and Farcebook " Skippy Mc Carthy "!
Please recommend my blogs to others since i am a supporter of " Adaptive Sport " and wish to see the roads become SAFER for ALL !
In conclusion i would add that only 77 MPs attending the debate is an OUTRAGE !
Where and WHY were the remaining 500 + that were in good health and no doubt claiming " expenses " for their " Duties " yesterday ?
TO THE “TIMES ” , this is the normal situation i experience !
Visiting your paper to add comment results in frustration !
Visited the following page:
On there is a box that says : “ Follow stories about “ Cities fit for Cycling” , clicked on and arrived at :
Went to “ Most read “ clicked on :
Went there and clicked on :

Back to the start so to speak , but then got to a box which announced a demand to pay £ 2 for access to “ The TIMES “ ! cancelled that box and went to :
From there I went to :
Around and around the houses we go , where we are going , nobody knows !
WAKE UP " TIMES " personnel , Smell the roses !

Cost me a couple of Megabytes to discover this , but I did not get to the story I had clicked on !
Do they really think I or others , are going to PAY for their opinion ?
Indistinct under the “ Sell Box ” was a newsy page , something other than the item I was seeking ! You think I want to look at something other than the item I clicked on and THEN PAY ?
