Don't worry about calling on MPs to vote through proper infrastructure for cyclists, the UKIP candidate for the seat of Charnwood in Leicestershire has come up with a new plan - those on two wheels can just bunny hop between the pavement and the road depending on what's coming the other way...

Ok, so that's a slight exageration of the content, but we did have to verify that the leaflet handed out by Lynton Yates wasn't a parody before tackling this one.

The leaflet reads:

"As much as I applaud cycling as a form of exercise and past-time (*cough, pastime*) the already congested roads cannot cope with both bus lanes AND cyclists

"Cycles should go back to the pavements yet give priority to pedestrians."

The tagline at the base reads: Common sense policies and common sense solutions.

Are they all in the pub when creating their policies?
