Grayling on Question Time

March 9, 2006

Yes, the Shadow Transport Secretary will be partaking in the BBC’s favourite political broadcast this evening.  Chris Grayling is famous for being the MP for Epsom and Ewell, but more nationally known for being a bit of a headache to David Blunkett.  We’ll be watching eagerly, and may even send in some questions – any suggestions below please.

10-year transport pledge ‘broken’

Mr Grayling said: “The government made promise after promise when it came to power about its plans for the transport system. But although there have been some improvements, most of the new projects they promised to complete by 2010 have either been scrapped altogether or kicked into the long grass. The rest will be longer and longer traffic james, and ever more crowded trains. Their grand schemes have turned out to be a massive disappointment, and their record on transport is a failure which will return to haunt them.”

Yes, let’s just hope for Mr Grayling’s sake that his party’s previous failure doesn’t come back to haunt him.
