Good old Mirror!

Great to see the Sunday Mirror playing its part in tackling crime, by tracking down David Cameron's stolen bicycle. It is a bit of a double whammy for the Mirror, considering that they had a photographer on hand to snap David Cameron as soon as he realised the bike was missing on Wednesday.

A more cynical blogger than me would be tempted to juxtaposition some facts here:

1. Old bicycles like Cameron's are rarely targets for thieves.

2. Stolen bicycles are almost never recovered.

3. A Labour-supporting tabloid had a photographer on the spot.

4. Its sister paper recovered the bike.

That cynical blogger would question whether the whole thing was a stunt, and whether the bike was ever stolen at all. Luckily, I am no cynic.
