My annoyance was the poor quality of the app; getting home wasn’t really the issue.


Oh, didn't appreciate you'd changed gripe. Quite agree the app is very poor quality; but as I was trying to say that isn't unusual, so not surprising. Its simply just a symptom of the malaise that's affecting our home IT capability; ironically as further demonstrated by the signalling issues they had in the morning!

Eeek! the leafy suburb commuters have been de bagging the party placement over this rail nonsense. How do we run this one into the sidings.......

An independent enquiry!

What will it say? As a public spirited gesture, here is a draft management summary Mr Grayling can use for free.

'The failure of the operators to implement their timetable changes was wholly down to the incompetence of Netwirk Rail, who, are useless at project management because they are a monopoly exactly like the old British Rail. What is needed is for the track and operation to be brought together just like the model created by the revised East coast arrangements the government have already put in hand. So we are already delivering the solution and giving it a name that even train buffs like. '

So that's all ok then, just in time for next election...

So, when the railways were privatised, we were told that private money would bring us far better management and so far better service. Now, some three decades on, after all that money had been invested, what's changed? We still have far too many strikes, far too many service delays, far too many breakdowns. The only 'improvement' seems to be that a few senior managers now get rewards that would 'bring a blush to the cheeks of a Barbary pirate'! What happens when the much heralded 'electrification project' is complete? I think we a ready know; delays, strikes, breakdowns but a nice big bonus for the boss.

Triples all round!
