David Cameron’s Bike

David Cameron, possible future Prime Minister, has had his bike nicked. He foolishly left it on Portobello Road locked only to itself, so it was easily picked up and carried away.

This is a great photo of Cameron just after. I like the fact that he’s outside a bookmakers, with it’s implications of risk and reward, unfettered markets, using knowledge to make money out of money, and all that the neoliberals love.
Unfortunately, markets like this always have losers as well as winners, and so some people end up poor, and nick bikes or deal drugs for a living. Not that the Labour party have a better record on the issue of gambling, what with their support for super casinos…
