Goldilocks and the three trains

I thought I would share the comments what someone who works for one of the train operating companies this week. When one passenger politely enquired as to why they couldnt manage to provide enough rolling stock time and time again, he said it was the weather.

"Our trains don't like it when it's too hot or too cold"

I suppose it has to be just right then!

Embattled Blair

Two pieces in the Guardian go some way to highlight what Labour MPs think of their leader at the moment.

In a letter to the editor Peter Kilfoyle, writing on the subject of fundraising , writes…."Is it little wonder that Labour party activists have given up in droves. They expect a higher purpose in their leaders."

And then what about former Health Secretary, Frank Dobson, who writes, "That's why the sooner he goes, the better for the Labour party and the country…."

Couldn't have said it better myself.

What bright spark?

 Having had the opportunity to live in the States as a child gave me the chance to visit various places I would never have otherwise seen.

One visit that sticks in the memory is visiting Thomas Eddison's House – the man widely acknowledged to have invented the light bulb. If memory serves me correctly the light bulbs in his house have never been replaced and are still working!

If a story in the Mail on Sunday is to believed, Government is pushing to encourage people to use energy saving bulbs (such as the one pictured here). Now surely this is to be welcomed, but then you hear how they are thinking of doing it.

They aren't trying to lowed the cost of energy saving bulbs – no – they want to tax less efficent ones.

So the Government who give people like my Nanas money in the form of her Winter fuel allowance, will now be taking it back off her by raising the price of normal bulbs. Is this really the best way to encourage us to be more energy efficient?
