Oooooh, Gordon, a Transport of Delight.
Government Transport Policy has been as joined up as any other policy they have unveiled.
Push through a third runway at Heathrow - against all advice - and downgrade the replacement for HST into a hybrid that is completely revolutionery ie no-one has tried this before.
Worse still, the trains will be made, more or less, in Japan and put together here.
Now, the Japanese do know something about making trains.
They must be pissin' themselves laughing at us buying bitz'n'pieces of their leftover prototypes.
I said to Barnacle Bill 'Maybe the trains will have no floors a la Flintstones and the unemployed could be utilised in a green way'.
'That might actually be an improvement on what NuLabor has ordered for us, and this country used to be the leading maker of trains!'
The Old Polish train at the top appears to be smiling.
I wonder why?
