Meanwhile back on the trains

Lord Macdonald of Tradeston, the Transport Minister and safe pair of hands brought in to mind John 'Two Jags' Prescott, put both feet in his mouth this week by saying in an interview with the New Statesman that there was no crisis on the railways. The Evening Standard went into a frenzy leading on Thursday with "Minister goes off the rails." The government were busy backpedalling later in the week fearing a backlash at the general election from weary rail travellers.
The Evening Standard also brings news of massage (fully clothed) offered by the East Japan Rail Company - dream on.
