So this is claiming to deliberately run a cyclist down while probably drunk - how stupid can people get?

    Surprise surprise, that's not what actually happened and the drink driving comment was "a joke".

    Please, no more news coverage of Twitter. It is full or morons who say things that can sound bad when chucked into the news by media companies who want free content and controversy.

    No it sounds bad however you put it, whether it is true or not....

    So what?

    Let her post her rants on Twitter. Let a thousand people post rants on Twitter, I can just ignore them and carry on with my life. Sadly Twitter is "social" and shiny so the media insist on reporting the inane ramblings as if it were newsworthy when they wouldn't bother giving airtime to some drunk pontificating in their local pub.

    Is there an actual victim who has come forward yet? Or is this just complaints against a Beavis and Butthead script?
