I'm sure you do understand really GTW, even if like me the commuting life style has never appealed because the price rises come at a rather unfortunate moment in the state of the UK economy.

That, and the track record of Graying isn't exactly glowing with success. His bountiful generosity towards the ECML isn't going down too well, but, not a problem as the taxpayers are conveniently available when the private sector runs out of money.

And,when all else fails, what better fall back than the tried and tested "it's all Labour's and ( this bit will set some hearts surging on here ) the unions fault ".
