More ministerial training

Ah. As Lobbydog predicted the Ashfield MP's desire to try and put a positive slant on something inherently bad (see post below) has come back to haunt him.

This story, likening Hoon to Thomas the Tank Engine's Fat Controller, covered the front page of the Lancashire Evening Post today.

It followed statements he made about overcrowding on the West Coast Mainline and is the first sign that his brief might be trickier than imagined.

To really push the point home that overcrowding on trains is bad Tory Mark Pritchard plans to present the minister with a tin of sardines.
