A DfT official has been forced into an apology after making derogatory remarks about train drivers at a public meeting in Croydon.
Peter Wilkinson, the director of Rail Passenger Services, told the audience that those of us who planned to resist cuts and attacks on our terms and conditions could "get the hell out of [his] industry".
We suggest Mr. Wilkinson does some thinking about whose industry it really is. If any of us didn't turn up for work, trains wouldn't run and stations wouldn't open. If Mr. Wilkinson didn't turn up for work... would anyone notice?
