 BritBike present Spider cartoons
Spider's cartoon - Vanity 
Spider went to Kempton Park autojumble on Saturday. A journey that involved travelling on five different motorways, including the much-hated London orbital M25. During the trip (which is about 80 miles each way) he reckoned that his vehicle was surveyed by gantry-mounted speed cameras over forty times (he actually lost count). George Orwell would have loved it! Gone are the days when the odd copper hid round a blind bend with a speed gun and if they caught you it jolly well served you right because any fool knew that's where they'd be hiding!
Oh Britannia, land of the free, where hast thou gone?
