Hard habit to break

with one comment

For transport secretary Patrick McLoughlin, talking nonsense seems to be a hard habit to break.

Patrick McLoughlin, speech, 19 May 2016

According to Mr McLoughlin, GB railways have grown overcrowded as the country slipped down the global infrastructure league table (whatever that is).

As can be seen, the ORR / TfL count of London commuter rail showed no real change in overcrowding over the period 1990 – 2008. If Mr McLoughlin has better figures, which support his speechwriter’s point, maybe he’ll present them.

  1. Unlike the many others spouting the wonders of HS2, Patrick is no good at rhetoric. No, pure-bred porkies are his speciality.
