Thank-you for showing the board how the class system is alive and well today.

I wonder what the boy from Kilburn thinks about yourself? Shameless.

Getting back to Wiggins. Did you know he's written no less than 3 books in the last 3 years alone? Talk about a cash-in King. 3 books! All with the same story. Wiggo likes telling us his narrative. 3 times over and in 2 other Sky related books. That's 5 books.
So talking of narrative, I may have got this wrong, but it appears that now it's not Wiggins, but the Hog who is the working class boy done good. . .

Starting on the mean streets of Cambridge, the Hog spent his summers as a teenager punting tourists and students around the river Cam, smiling politely for them, while deep down a burning resentment smouldered. But then, by dint of his bravery and persistence in going to school, passing A levels and applying through the UCAS system, he won a place at the dreaming spires of his dreams. Putting up with the condescension of his new peers, and living in a one bedroom flat with his mum, he passed his English and Philosophy bachelors degree, and even paid the 10 admin fee to claim his masters.

From there, he tread an unusual and perilous past, cynically 'playing' his Cambridge connections to score a job working in PR in London, all the while restlessly moving between the suburbs of Clapham (but near the Brixton borders!), Crouch End (but on the Archway end!), and Finsbury Park (well, OK then, Highbury) before settling in the little known suburb of Notting Hill - which, a little over 50 years earlier, had been the scenes of race riots.

It's a great story, which I'm sure you could get at least three books from.

That said, it's not really very street is it?

How dare he, he's a monster

He also helped set up this:

gilmore-creates-the-dtpc-honda-pro-cycling-womens-team

No doubt more PR though

Has someone told the Daily Mail?



Working class scrounger, using the benefits and compensation culture to claim 1700 compensation after 'hit' by a car and then spends it on a racing bike.

Exactly! They'd rather see the "hilarious" Epo-connection joke, than the bleedin' obvious fact he couldn't afford a bike. And he gave half the compensation money to his Mum.

Well he'd have to have a bike in the first place to be in the crash to obtain the compensation. So he just got a brand new red shiney model. And 700 is not half of 1700 but I'm sure Mum still appreciated it. Would have paid for the turbo trainer she bought him for Christmas
