    I don’t know if anyone’s read this, but it’s just the biggest load of rubbish in the world: http://www.wandsworthguardian.co.uk/news/10345931.Boris_bikes_in_the_dock__TfL_lays_cables_without_planning_permission/

    There is a case of NIMBYism (Not In My Back Yard) but if it was built without planning consent then that is a valid area of criticism, nobody should be above the law. However, many docking stations are placed in surprising odd locations, it ought to be a case of taking genuine concerns into account and selecting useful parts.

    Most people are conservative by nature, as it is easier to be reactive and oppose change by default, than tolerate uncertainty, chances are that given a few months of the docking point being in action, they shall be amongst the most loyal supporters of the scheme…especially when the tube drivers inevitably strike.
