We need a competent transport secretary. We’ve got Chris Grayling | Gaby Hinsliff
He has presided over chaos on the UK’s railways, but the man with the reverse Midas touch steams merrily on
Will nothing derail Chris Grayling?
The transport secretary has long presided over a shambles of a public service and now stands accused by the cross-party transport select committee of failing to take proper responsibility for the rail timetabling crisis that turned so many lives upside down earlier this year. Children missed school lessons, adults feared for their jobs and livelihoods because they couldn’t get to work on time, furious passengers were forced to fork out for taxis and emergency childcare. If this were France, we’d probably be manning the barricades by now, not tweeting crossly about the 7.37 being delayed yet again.
