So that is what you use instead of your bike, is it Mick ?

Must be....no sign of a bike, perhaps it's stored inside ready for take off ;-{)

Why didn't they use a British made helicopter? It is more important than ever that we support our own industries and workers.

Wasn't that the Helicopter that Prince Charles flew in on his visit to Wigan the other week?

What was HRH visiting in Wigan ?

Helen, he came to see Mick of course. He got fed up of talking to his trees so he thought 'I know what i'll do, i'll go and have a chat with Mick about his 'lectric Bike.' I think he is planning to get one for his dad now that they have taken his car off him. So, seeing as Camilla was busy all morning pegging out the washing he decided to jump in his personal whirligig and pay a visit to his old mate Mick.
