Integrated transport

John 'Two Jags' Prescott's integrated transport policy excelled itself last night, stranding 600 arriving passengers at London's Stansted Airport with no trains to take them home.
Back to work for me today and my late-running Thameslink train home terminates at East Croydon - due to staff shortage or a broken-down train outside the station depending on which excuse you believe. So an early finish turns late.
The Government are still hoping that voters will blame Railtrack, the Train Operating Companies - anyone but themselves - but word-of-mouth on the trains is that people are heartily sick of the constant delays and manifest mismanagement and will remember when election-time rolls around.
