    For the record, despite what may come across in some of my postings, I am not a member of the ABD. I
    don't believe they represent the views of 'normal' motorists, or, as in my case, self confessed
    petrol heads, and they certainly don't speak for me or many other motorists I know.

    I don't think even the original suggested P*** S**** was actually a member (with the ABD having so
    few members it seem quite likely that he/you isn't one). I think the author was just making
    reasonable connections between unhinged organizations and unhinged individuals that seem to have
    similarly unhinged ideas; the ABD and the leader of the SS seem to fit that description.

    Heheheh, I know who PS is .. ;)

    I just wanted to make it plain that many drivers such as I, an enthusiastic fan of motorised
    transport who has previously been forthright about my views, want nothing to do with these people.

    They do NOT, whatever they claim, represent the views of the majority of drivers. Though, as you
    say, their subscription rates make that plain anyway .. ;)
