The Times (not the sadly demised Ealing Times) has this amazing story. My reactions are twofold...
How dare Labour remove the cross-London service between Birmingham and Brighton? The direction we should be moving in is having *more* train services that pass smoothly and conveniently through London for people travelling between the North and the South without disgorging their passengers onto the heaving tube network.
How dare Labour waste our money on this unused coach because they don't have the guts to consult people about axing this rail service? Ministers' efforts to avoid political embarrassment know no bounds.
Toran suggested a trip on the ghost bus from Ealing Broadway next Tuesday, which may not be a bad idea!
