Sarcasm is a way of expressing anger and seems to be more prevalent (and better understood) in cultures that have a history of being oppressed. I'm pretty sure Daniel wasn't going for laughs here.

When did all the newspapers get together and decide to be as right-wing reactionary as fucking possible about fatal car-cycle collisions?

It's their RIGHT to pay as little attention as required by law while operating heavy machinery at speed.
