Fuck the £30bn high-speed rail plan; just put in more seats, wifi, and power sockets.

Lord Adonis said the project would create 10,000 jobs and yield £2 in benefits for every £1 spent. Wow. That’s £3m per job.

The problem is not how long it takes, it’s that you have to sit on the fucking floor. Give someone a seat and a plug and it’ll be some of the most productive time they’ll have all week, and they’ll want it to take longer.
