Got a flow of texts last night, including one from the man himself, telling me of the sacking of Tom Harris by Grumpy Grodon. What’s that old saying in politics about a man laying down his friends for his life? It somehow just seemed to pop into my mind as a result of No. 10’s current act of desperation, otherwise known as a ‘cabinet reshuffle.’
Couldn’t resist a quick look online at Railway Eye this morning, to check how the DaFT ballot between me and Tom Harris is going, to see who fans of the spiky RE blog believe should replace Ruth Kelly as the Secretary of State for Transport! Mischievous lot.
London all day, for various meetings and appointments, not least to talk to new top man at Angel Trains, Rob Verrion, about the National Rail Awards for 2009 - which is the tenth anniversary of this event. It’s turned into a great evening and it’s good to see that the UK rail industry has embraced the NRA so warmly. I can’t believe that next year will be a decade since broacaster and journalist John Humphrys and I hosted the first NRA in 2000 at the Hilton in Park Lane. Blimey. Time flies.
Right. Let’s have another go. Writers block? Bloggers block, more like. Ah! I know….
Hello…and what on earth am I doing here? That’s not a beardy ‘meaning of life’ muse – I mean actually here - ‘blogging’ I’m told they call it. Like I don’t have enough to do. But self-evidently, here is where I plainly am. Blogging. Without the aid of a safety net.
