From the Liverpool Echo today (not available online):-

Southport MP John Pugh has urged the government to consider forcing rail operators to install seat belts in train carriages.

I know enough about trains to know that this will be impractical and expensive and will contribute nothing to safety while driving costs up even further.

I’ve praised this guy (he used to teach Religious Studies at my old school, don’tcha know) a couple of times in the past. Needless to say that praise is rescinded now that he’s revealed his true colours: just another self-important, career-minded, pleb-pleasing, LibDem bandwagon-jumper.

    Likewise. He was a top bloke as a teacher, but apparently he’s a crap MP.

    Christmas and New Year greetings to yeh, by the way.

    And to you, Seb. 🙂

    Anyway, since John Pugh MP clearly has the best interests of his constituents at heart, he can go to Southport station during morning rush hour and explain personally to all the standees on the packed train that they’ll have to get off because “it’s not safe”.

    Just imagine it!
