Question

Further to your answer to Questions No: 4161/2012;

"I cycle the whole of London. When I next do Stirling Corner I will give you a report" ;

and your answers to questions 261/2013, 522/2013, 1041/2013, 1464/2013 and Question No: 2039/2013 and Question No: 2497 / 2013  referring back to your non- answers to my invitation to you to attempt to go round Stirling Corner on your bike, and your repeated answer:

 

"I have nothing to add to MQ 4161/2012.", and your answer to Question No: 3083 / 2013, "I cycle the whole of London and when I next pass through Stirling Corner I will be sure to give you a report"; and your answer to Question No: 2013/3698:

 

"Since my last response to you on this matter "I cycle the whole of London and when I next pass through Stirling Corner I will be sure to give you a report", I have not cycled through Stirling Corner. However, when I next pass through Stirling Corner, I will be sure to give you a report."

 

Have you ever cycled round Stirling Corner? Have you cycled round Stirling Corner since you promised to do so; if not why not; and if not when do you expect to cycle round Stirling Corner? Or is it that you have no intention of doing so in the foreseeable future and just want to pretend you are a keen cyclist with cyclists' concerns at heart and have no intention of honouring your commitment to do so, so that your original answer can be seen as nothing more than a fobbing off exercise? Or are you frightened of doing so, as it is too dangerous? Why do you have nothing to add? Aren't you embarrassed by your non responses when reminded of your promise? And to Question No: 2013/4184 “I have nothing further to add to my previous answers to this question. It costs around £70 to respond to each Mayor’s Question and this question has now been asked 10 times.” 

 

Why have you nothing to add? Are you not ashamed of your continual failure to honour this commitment? Why are you trying to avoid legitimate scrutiny of your work by suggesting that questions such as this that you find difficult and embarrassing should not be repeatedly asked until you provide a proper  reply?
