We Apologise For The Delay?

Tomorrow, Mark Harper is expected to announce the creation of, "Great British Railways (GBR), a new public body that will bring the operation of track and trains under the same roof and oversee timetables and ticketing." And that, brothers and sisters, is called delaying the inevitable. An inevitability that is also colossally popular.

Although it would still have to be run by the right people. When return tickets are abolished, then expect two singles to cost only as much as a return for one year, but no longer. Even that, though, will be too much for the Trussonomic Labour Party. Still, when it voted against GBR, then that would at least give connoisseurs of constitutional nicety the rare spectacle of the Official Opposition's having opposed anything.

But we are heading for a hung Parliament. To strengthen families and communities by securing economic equality and international peace through the democratic political control of the means to those ends, including national and parliamentary sovereignty, we need to hold the balance of power. Owing nothing to either main party, we must be open to the better offer. There does, however, need to be a better offer. Not a lesser evil, which in any case the Labour Party is not.


  1. You'll be proved right over ticket prices.
