As I got on my train today I suddenly remembered my main rant on the subject of travel. 5 abreast seating on SouthWestTrains…..excruciatingly uncomfortable even with only four people sat down. I have complained about this numerous times to anybody that I even think just might be listening. I even told the rather rotund Eric Pickles MP and minister for local government once, he was not aware (even though he works and lives on the SWT network area). He informed me that “for train operating company’s the traveller is king”. Eric Pickles is not of this world, wish I was on his!
