With all the controversy over the Magda/Julia "we were only joking" incident, plus The Age's reporting of cycling incidents today here, here and here , it's occurred to me that a brilliant defence for bashing International (Indian) students would be: "Oh, but they were riding a bike on the road!"
The protagonists would get off without penalty, no worries.
And for once, the Herald Sun has provided space for both voices in the Magda vs Road Cyclists media scrum. Thank you H-S, considering you are a naming sponsor for one of the largest bike races held in this state, which occurs later this month incidentally. Oops.
