News in brief...

Rail overcrowding to get worse until the network is expanded
Rail passengers in England and Wales face more overcrowding and
higher fares until the network is expanded, a spending watchdog has warned.

Ahhh, it looks like someone has been taking courses at The Instutute of The Blindingly Obvious™
You elect tory governments for 12 years or so who do what they can to sell of a nations assets and any one is surprised by this?
You then elect a conservative government for another 10 years which continue to do the same and what do we get?

Surprise surprise, a public transport network that is run by companies that only have one thing in mind: their shareholders (And rightly so, this is capitalism after all)...
So the next time you're on a packed train, think back on who you have voted for... And if you could vote but didn't then you have no right to complain in the first place...

I'm not saying a nationalised transport system would necessarily be better, but at least we'd be able to point the finger firmly at the boss at the top and tell them to improve.
And each time fares rise, tell our local MPs that it's their head on the block...

Lap dancing clubs 'no trouble'
Local residents often wanted officers to take action on "moral" grounds.

Moral grounds? I shudder to think where that could eventually lead.
Moral police making sure that every one behaves?
Oh well, that most likely isn't going to go anywhere :-D

Expedition set for 'ghost peaks'
Nooooooo, wathc out, that's the Mountains Of Madness...
You'll doom us all...

Well, it's been far too long since I read pulp fiction with tentacles. I really should reread some of my Lovecraft books soonish...

Or some of the shortstories/novellas set in the fabulous Lovecraft universe...
