I got taken to task for suggesting that the UK had become a third world country. Is there really any doubt now?
Thousands of rail passengers are being urged to re-schedule their journeys after a power failure caused havoc on the East Coast mainline. Trains between London's Kings Cross station and Peterborough ground to halt as an overhead line was brought down. Engineers heading to repair the problem at Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, were hampered by icy roads.
The operator, East Coast, is advising all passengers who have arrived at King's Cross to go home and restart their journeys tomorrow. And what if they live in Yorkshire and are trying to get home ... what then? Breweries and the inability to organise liquid-fuelled celebrations come to mind. The country is being run by morons and idiots.
