      A Pleb living in a state of utter disbelief says:

      It is newsworthy because that French idiot Hollande has directed all Ministers whenever possible to use the train second class to save the taxpayer money .

      Mr Cameron has done nothing like this for the British taxpayers he represents .

      Just send the plebs the bills .

        Won’t second class get there a day or two after first class?

        Mornington Crescent says:

        Meanwhile, Hollande now makes copious use of the luxurious Presidential jet “Air Sarko One”, despite heavily criticising it while in oppo.

        Plus, the lovely Yamina Benguigui recently pissed away 140k on a chartered Falcon to get to Kinshasa, despite the order for Ministers to use scheduled services.

        Socialist? Hypocrite? Non, surement pas…

      Blowing Whistles says:

      Now what was it that Cameron said in Brussells yesterday when pressed about the energy bills – it went something like “… I want to be on the side of the hard pressed ….”?

      He “wants to be” < read that again – on the side of the hard pressed British public?

      So when are you going to prosecute Gideon for having an inappropriate type of ticket, gideon probably thought he was back in the days of the Bullingdon Club or was he trying to go first class, pay second class fare and then claim first class fare

    Important man buys wrong ticket – so what? This is a non-story, some people wouldn’t be happy unless he was travelling on the megabus… in the luggage compartment.

      He should travel on the MelodyBus, near the gas inlet.

      You have clearly not looked at the detail of this. It is not simply that he bought the wrong ticket (though that in itself would be pretty stupid). If that is all it was he could simply have asked for and paid for an upgrade. BUT he didn’t. He tried, through his aide, to blag an upgrade for free, on the basis that he could not be expected to sit in standard class. I make no judgement on his right/need to sit in First Class and would not have him travel on the megabus. No what makes it a story is the sheer crass stupidity of the man to let this happen and be seen to happen in the current climate. It is unbelievable that he was so THICK.

    Surely Cabinet members should be cosseted a bit. I don’t want those administering important aspects of my life run ragged. How about a little bit of deference for office. Jumped up officialdom at it again?

    Who cares? Why does it matter if the guy is travelling first class? He is the Chancellor of the Exchequer for christ’s sake. Do we want the rest of the world to think we are like India or Ghana!

      Good heavens, no!

      We are not that rich.

      Steve Lloyd. says:

      It’s the fact that he did it on a standard ticket, and has now made an even bigger arse of himself than usual. Why?

      did he want to appear as a man of the people, a pleb if you like. That boat never left the dock.

      He should have just bought a first class ticket and had done with it. The reaction would have been so what. Now subjected to ridicule, and Labour are going to make hay with this in the HOC.

      Anonymous says:

      Have you read the story at all? He can travel whatever class he likes but he needs the right ticket like everyone else. The real issue is how can someone in his position be so fucking stupid to let this happen.

    Same sort of silly grin Chris Barrie had when playing Gordon Brittas, a man who was obliviously pompous, who always seemed to survive everything, despite his cluelessness and general inadequacy for purpose. Oh, hold on, which one is it I’m describing again?

    You would not have thought that someone like Mark Beardy Git would have attempted to cover up the actions of Jimmy Savile really, would you?

    Bit of a lopsided look. As long as he upgraded and paid for it OUT OF HIS OWN POCKET. Then thats it he obviously didn’t ‘pleb’ any one so hefty farts all round!

    Anyone familiar with Euston will know that the side entrance is exactly where a Minister’s car would pick him up.

Boris on his fellow Islingtonista Emily Thornberry:

“It was an entirely run-of-the-mill English townscape, with some straightforward words to go with it. There was no obvious insult, no abuse, no overt sneering. She might have got away with it entirely, had some alert blogger not spotted it. He instantly detected the coded message that Emily Thornberry was sending to all her right-on, bien-pensant, Labour-luvvie friends in Islington, or wherever else it is that they follow her on Twitter.”

Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
