The horn is most often a ridiculous piece of equipment.

Those who use it except in emergencies and exceptional circumstances are likewise ridiculous.

Road users should be aware of other road users and behave accordingly. Trumping loudly “IMIMPORTANTANDIMHERE” is rude and bullying and almost always uneccesary

I disagree, in that London, I use my horn to indicate my presense. Quite often too.  Rarely to a cyclist, actually can't remeber the last time I used the horn to indicate my presence to a cycle rider.

A car horn sounding close to a cyclist can startle and make them lose balance and fall off.

I'm not sure why you apparently do not appreciate this.

The LeBlanc example is about central London so it's not going to shatter the peace and tranquility.

If we take him at his word then the cyclists are contravening the Highway Code (by riding more than 2 abreast) and he is not (by using his horn to warn others of his presence).

Anecdotally my main problems, on my, thankfully rare, trips into London by car, are generally with cyclists* doing unbelievably stupid things.

*Not all..just some.
What I feel most at risk from when cycling in London is other cyclists.

Could've been Feanor?

Yeah, were his gears suspiciously clean and misbehaving?  :)

Anti-rattle modification to the mudguard on the runabout - two holes and cable tied it to the rack
