Laziness and disinformation

The Telegraph reported Wiggins as saying, about today:

“We handled that pretty well, so an hour time trial to make history should be a doddle.”

This is an out-and-out-lie. What he said was:

“So next up is the time trial. It’s been a long road to get there: my buildup for the Tour began on 1 November last year, and that buildup always took into account the fact we would be racing the time trial nine days after the Tour and three days after the road race. I’m not worried about recovering from the road race. I was exhausted at the end, we all were, but I’ve had three days to recover. I don’t think it’s as much of an issue as it seemed nine months ago. On the final Saturday of the Tour I rode one of the best time trials I’ve ever done in terms of numbers, and that came after a hard 220km stage the day before and two tough stages in the Pyrenees before that. In comparison, doing the Olympic road race and then having three days off is a doddle.”

Which profession has the lowest quality people:

1. Journos;
2. Politicians;
3. Lawyers?

This is being written and scheduled at 12:45. I don’t know what the result will be and I won’t be around to see it. Whatever it is, he did NOT say it would be a doddle to win gold.

    He was of course just giving a comparison on the rest periods, but it doesn’t really matter as he WON………………..

    I think you have the order about right, although the first two are very close. A few exceptions in all three groups of course.

    In my opinion the order should be Politicians first and joint second of Lawyers and Journos.

    Tough call. It really is. But I think we have three at the number one slot.

    Tough call… they are all lower than a snakes belly, but lowest would probably be the lawyers with gold, then politicians with silver and Journalists with bronze.

    Lots of Lawyers, or people with law degrees, go on to be politicians like lots of maggots eventually get to be flies, (ew! horrid though.. go away!!)
