Day 2615: The Knighthood Now Arriving on Platform 13 is the delayed 14.40 Gong from Rugby


No, seriously, they're giving the boss of Network Rail a KNIGHTHOOD on the same day as they fine his company a record FOURTEEN MILLION POUNDS.

"It is London’s commuters who deserve a knighthood for putting up with the cattle-class travel conditions they experience day-in, day-out, not Network Rail's boss."

said Liberal Democrat candidate for Mayor, Mr Brian.

Handily, that fine will come out of one government bank account and go back into another, rather than, say, being spent upgrading the West Coast Main Line…

In an emergency room somewhere, satire is flatlining again!
