Scandalous suggestion!

You'll be telling me the NHS wastes money next!

"A spokesman for the Department for Transport said yesterday: “We have no plans to introduce nuclear-powered flying saucers to the network.”"

Hell's teeth, so it's imminent then, is it? :hmm: :rolleyes:

I wish the idiots that run the trains from Waterloo would provide an alternative. I must have wasted 5 hours in the past week with delays. God help us southerners if we have 0.0001mm of snow......

Indeed. They dictate the political agenda in the UK and kept the Tories in power up until 1997, when they found another right wing politician to support.
