Except Corbyn of course. Shame he isn't an expert in locating empty seats, far more useful....
The real shame is that on our over subsidised, badly run, privatised rail system, passengers have to search the length of an overcrowded train to find seats for themselves and their travelling companions.
As an aside see attached.

in theory, anyone can on a day wake up and decide to adopt the consultant title".
True. Same as the term Engineer in this country (I'm one of those too, according to bits of paper). Your point it?
Ride fast, take chances. Just don't blame me when you fall off.

Anyway, getting on a train, sitting down and arriving on time wouldn't have made a very good film. Gotta love Corbyn's new style of politics.

I quite like fantasy movies, and at least it would have been nostalgic, like the old days on BR when you could do just that. ;D

Ah, bits of paper that's different, I had some of those, took me five years on very low pay to achieve. My point, I don't think there is one, it was just an observation, in the end it's a matter of opinion. :laugh:

Ahh yes, like the days when British Leyland produced quality cars that didn't rust.

Oh I forgot I was wearing these

I was thinking more of the days when Britain had a ship building industry, a manufacturing base, when we made motorcycles, and cars, before the Japanese and the Germans took that over from us, when we had a coal industry, before Thatcher and her gang destroyed it.
The days when there were real jobs, not zero hours contracts, the days when our NHS was run efficiently by professional medical staff, not managers, a time when we looked after and cared for our elderly in the community.
The days when our schools were properly funded and run by local authorities, oh I know there were a lot of things not right, a lot of things to do, but that was before we got ourselves involved in other peoples wars, followed a foreign policy dictated by the Yanks.
The days when people were more important than profit, a short period of time I know, but a time immediately after the 2nd WW when we had a Labour government when we seemed to have a bright future, a time before Thatcher and Blair.
I was thinking we could have such a time again, with a party and a leader who listened to the people, a government that was prepared to invest in the future, to tax fairly, and chase after the tax cheats and free loaders, that's not looking through rose coloured glasses, that's hope, and a belief that we can have a better and fairer system.

Is this guy the biggest moron the Labour Party can put forward as a "potential" Prime Minister?  Corbyn is frightening, but this guy does not care a toss about the UK, let alone Labour voters!  http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/709441/Owen-Smith-prime-minister-eu

Labour will only win when they become a Socialist Party of the 21st Century , and not stay in the 19th and 20th!  They will not be elected when they have people like Corbyn in charge and his arch-Racist, Diane Abbott!
