Dear Rail Companies, Minister for Transport

A parable.

"People all over the world", The O'Jays once sang; "Join hands. Start a love train. A love train."

And so it came to pass. Unfortunately, the network's inevitable privatisation ultimately meant that prices ended up being jacked sky-high to accommodate the bosses' exorbitant salaries, all the while forcing a downward knock-on effect on service quality. The love train now runs just one service a day, and is 40 minutes late, if indeed it bothers to turn up at all.

Wistful regards,
