CARRY ON GRAYLING: Brexit Calamities And Train Fare Hikes
Chris Grayling, Secretary Of State for Transport has had an interesting 2019 so far.
He was forced into the breach to defend the decision by the government to aware a contract worth around £13.8 million to Seaborne Freight to run a freight service between Ramsgate and Ostend. The claim by Graylings department that it “carefully vetted the company’s commercial, technical and financial position” is beyond laughable. Seemingly they overlooked the fact that they have never run a ferry before. Or maybe they didn’t. Maybe this is the ultimate proof that the so-called preparations for a ‘no deal Brexit are all smoke and mirrors.
The latter suspicion is somewhat confirmed by the backtracking implied in the Department For Transports latest comment: “Taxpayer’s money will only be transferred following the provision of an effective service.”
Meanwhile, rail passengers are rightly fuming at the latest fare hike. Punctuality meanwhile is at a 13 year low. No matter who else Grayling wants to blame the simple fact is that they are asking for people to pay more for a service that is getting worse.
The Department For Transport is descending into an outtake from a Carry On film…….how Chris Grayling is still a Minister is a complete mystery.
