Deep-Fried Broonman Imp

British trains are twice as expensive as German ones, and four times more likely to be late...Our masters have never made much sense on transport, but recent events - skyrocketing fares plus technological paralysis - seem to bear out John Stuart Mill's line that nations that can't run their transport won't remain nations for much longer... It's time to have a system run by engineers, not by bankers and lawyers saving up for Caribbean yachts.
