Inconsiderate parking = yes.

Stuck up twohat = No.

The excuse 'there was no other free space' could easily be true.

Was the biker inconvenienced = no - He could easily have parked nearer the other bike - It does not have to be one single bike (of that size) to a space. Now if he had a Rocket... Different scenario.

'What are you going to do about it" - "post the video on Facebook so your fans can make their own decision on your 'caring' attitude towards bikers"

If he had started to rant back and swear or, say something akin to 'Don't you realise who you are speaking to', I would side against him. In the case portrayed, I can't be fussed enough to care.

Shouldn't of parked there, simple as. Fair play for not rising to it but sadly inconsiderate parkers are everywhere.

People park in front of our Gates at home so we can't get in or out until they come out the shop b3cause they 'only popped in quick'
Me and the other half can't park in mother and baby spots because non baby people have parked there or they have a kid that just stays in the car while they quickly run in without them (do they need to park there)
When me and my mates go skeg on the bikes and park in the bike bay cars park in front of us because there is no where else to park.
Idiots park on the wrong side of the road with their headlights on at night glaring you because they don't care about the rules of the road.

These people drive amongst us

Shoulda just shouted "OI BIG EARS WHERE'S NODDY" and left it at that. Probably would've wound him up a lot more than the rather pathetic video confrontation did.

Ehh.. Difficult to have a strong opinion on it...

Don't think he should have parked there but would have excused it if he'd been anywhere near apologetic.
I personally get wound up when I see cars parked in bike spaces cos you don't wanna cram your bike next to someone elses if you can help it in case it gets booted, scratched or maybe even dominoes knocked over... Etc etc..

His "I don't care" and "What are you going to do about it?" was kinda what made me go "Pfft Dick" but everyone has their shite days.

Looks like he was just caught on a bad day, but when you choose to be a public image, you have to take what goes with it; which normally means being on your best behavior all the time..

For him to behave badly is just... Well actually kind of expected!

Saw the great man with Sabbath at the O2 a couple of weeks ago. He was in good voice and Tony's playing was ace.

Heard on the radio that they played their last gig in Birmingham the other day , they asked a fan after how ozzy performed and he described him a a Doddering God ... made me chuckle .

Not as impressive as Charlie Harper though - who still kicks it with a beer bottle at 72!
