I can't begin to tell you how shit Avanti trains are, how their clown show has ruined what was a great service when Virgin run it, wonder why no one in the media seems to care advance tickets are essentially a thing of the past and that the things are likely not to be running at any given time for no apparent reason whatsoever. It's a national disgrace.I'd honestly hate to see a self fulfilling prophesy / Catch 22 where the earth gets destroyed if we don't stop using cars, but we can't stop using cars because the public transport has been reduced to almost zero. That's an act of self harm greater than Brexit, IMO.
But, that is where the current lot are. Since just about holding on to Uxbridge they're convinced that a phoney "war" on Green and Woke in favour of motorists will play well across the whole country. A race to the bottom, piloted by the desperate.
Trains should be a joy. The Boy and I got the Eurostar to and from Amsterdam for Ajax. Legroom, minimal check in time (about 5 mins before boarding on the way home), basically a travelling bar (if you get stuff before boarding). And cheaper than most scheduled flights. Effortless border crossing too, unless, y'know.....
If the PM used them rather then his private jet, we might have more luck getting them fit for purpose.
