Another lesson in Not Getting It

Back in the Yookay, and what should appear but a Tory Transport Minister doing his bit for the car lobby. Again.

 The lovely Philip Hammond, for ‘tis he, has spoken about the ‘reforms’ he plans on the railways – see link bottom right. You’ll note that among his proposals are:

  • Ending taxpayer subsidy (apparently we rail users are rich)
  • Running shorter trains off peak, so that all trains will be as vile as the rush hour ones, presumably. Not a word about adding carriages to the peak time sardine cans, you’ll note.
  • ‘Considering the removal of conductors’ – not that they are called that these days, Mr Hammond.

 This, so they tell us, is “The Greenest Government Ever”. Oh yes it is…..

How cold is my valley?

Who I am

This blog started during the months before the 2010 General Election, in which I was the Green candidate for Calder Valley. It's morphed into an account of green activism...and other meanderings.
