Don't make me laugh...
TRANSPORT Secretary Chris Grayling is no better than a standup comedian. At least a stand-up comedian allows its audience to sit down. You try finding a seat on the Northern Rail services.
It would appear Tory austerity has returned with a vengeance. A shabby Billy bodge-up train timetable is causing chaotic delays and cancellations. People unable to get to work and students late for school or college. Is this an example of Tory privatisation? Dollops of taxpayerfunded subsidies have been thrown at the railways, but the result has always remained the same.
Laughably, Chris Grayling has already announced that Teesside will get its very own direct route to London's King's Cross. Nonstop trains from Middlesbrough to banks of the South may sound a bit optimistic given the present circumstances. Middlesbrough to South Bank sounds a much more realistic proposition.
