Taking the Adle out of Adlestrop
Trains, on the other hand, are a left wing, communal ideal whereby society gets together and sets up a system for everybody to travel together, all at the same pace and on equal terms. Obviously you need the fare in the first place (and MP's would have to have a special First Class Carriage!) but the feeling of society coming together and working together is far more pronounced with rail travel. It's also greener in terms of fuel efficiency.
Why can't we properly re-nationalize the Rail System in this Country, decide to invest in proper new infrastructure for the long term and tell Clarkson to clear off to Texas where his true heart is. We may have to tell him to take Bob Crowe and his mates with him.
