Geoff Hoon as dancing elf!

TRAIN Sardine is a website devoted entirely to talking down Britain’s railways. However, they have, on this occasion, come up with something that will bring Christmas cheer to us all: transport secretary Geoff Hoon, Richard Branson, Brian Souter of Stagecoach and Iain Coucher of Network Rail dressed as Christmas elves (the fifth one is, I think, Tim Shoveller of East Midlands Trains, but I could be wrong).

Ah bless..

Hat-tip to Railway Eye.

  1. You can do yourself easily enough by going to and following the instructions

    Look forward to seeing who you choose.

    Must have a go myself…mmm which Tory Councillors round here are most elf-like ?

    Ahh, the much loved Geoff Hoon! Guido’s followers, who over the last few weeks have run a disorganised yet successful campaign to replace a certain four letter “c word” with “Hoon” in Guido’s blog comments, will no doubt enjoy the video…… 😉

    It’s good to see that your opinion of Geoff Hoon is just as unflattering as the one I hold.

    ‘talking down the railways’ how very dare we, aren’t they shut until Boxing Day? absolutely pathetic

    Like NtG just wrote, it’s superfluous to talk down a ‘service’ on the brink of a 58 hr shutdown. Mickey Mouse, Banana Republic etc.

    I suppose this isn’t a massive national scandal because a tenth rate joke of a rail network is what you’ve come to expect in Britain. A bit difficult to hang it entirely on your lot though.

    Merry Xmas BTW.
