Public transport - what's that?

Hypocracy of politicians.

Today the Express bleats on about politicians who like to tell us all what to do, but do something entirely different themselves, nothing new there then. They even have the temerity to illustrate the piece with a picture of our beloved Member of Parliament David Miliband.

The whole essence of the Express report is to follow up the research of Lib Dem MP Bob Russell who wanted to find out how many of NuLabour's Cabinet have actually used a train or a bus in the last year. So it should not surprise him, or us, that only Transport Secretary Douglas Alexander has used a bus or a train in the last year (and only because it's his job.)

We all know of course that it is not necessary for David Miliband to use a bus, he walks faster than most modes of public transport anyway, and can be regularly seen walking from Chichester Metro station carrying his six ministerial boxes, an umbrella, a case containing his laptop, a suitcase, the Shields Gazette tucked under his arm, and a wrap of fish and chips from Colman's under his other arm as he makes his way home to the Redhead Park area. (Or so he would have us understand!)

Harking back to the taxi company who have yet to "fess up" Mr . Graham Robson proprietor of Westoe Taxis recently confided to me blurted out that..........(no I'd better not repeat what he said.)


Daily Express.
