A co-conspirator draws Guido’s attention to Boris’ Telegraph column yesterday, saying how bad the train service is to Henley on Thames:
“Unbelievable! And even if they did want to lay on more capacity now, the Government interferes at every turn. There are currently 14 officials in the Department of Transport who are working on the railway timetable, and at a recent meeting with angry MPs Alistair Darling, the Transport Secretary, was seen to be poring over his copy of Bradshaw and musing on whether or not an 0848 service could be added to some branch line, in addition to the 0932. The Secretary of State!”
So has Alistair Darling returned to the Deparment of Transport?
