.....as connex is no more - it is now South Eastern Trains - owned by the Strategic Rail Authority until some other company mug enough to take it on can be found.

Does this mean as we're government owned I am temporarily a civil servant? <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Astonishingly, I didn't notice. The train was still covered in felt-tip pen, stank of wee and sat outside London Bridge for 20 minutes not doing anything.

I had to occupy myself imagining Macca hoof one into the Notts County net from 30 yards...

The sitting outside of London Bridge for 20 minutes is something of a time-honoured tradition, that Network Rail's signalmen seem keen to continue.

Or would you prefer the driver to go through that little red light in front of him?

Oddly enough my train was 17 mins early. ie, only 3 mins behind the timetable time.

Only if he obstructs Dave's train as a result. More than 10 minutes early just isn't fair.

Ah but it's just to lull me into a false sense of security, as I have to be home early tonight to get to the ground by 7:15 for the shareholder's meeting.

So you'll be leaving in the next 30 minutes then just to ensure meeting your desired arrival time?
