Who is that railway woman who was crying? Someone give her a medal, what a brilliant example of humanity...

for the 300 that was quoted earlier you could actually buy an old car and just dump it when you get there!

you could probably sell it on to help cover the costs!

The woman doing the interviewing was absolutely hopeless. Reading, badly, from a sheet, isn't interviewing.

Every time I see these managers I want to stick my boot through the TV screen.

Speaking of managers, here's another one that looks like he was just a twinkle in his daddies eye when Lax was doing his job.

It's always appeared to me that the managerial types who put charters up on the wall and talk about the title of their Powerpoint presentations are invariably the most vacuous and useless.
'Give me solutions, don't give me problems'
i.e. I don't fully understand the problem and how to fix it, but I'll dry your hair anyway.

The P45 motivational speech, just want to stab them in the face when they start with that one.

Birmingham New Street is being refurbished which is happening
Yes, like I said, papering over the cracks!

I live in Brum!

We know the problems.

We know that the refurbishment will not help with the bottleneck as they are unable to increase the lines into the station, which is why the trains have to queue up all the time.

What we needed was a new station.

Laxman and that lass with the glasses are the only two to come out of this with any credit at all.

I bet Steve Manager is just following the camera crew around - he seems to be in every shot!

Could have let Laxman keep his East Coast hat. It's not like they can give it to another employee to wear.

Awwwwww...Laxman is a lovely man and you can see he really loved his job.


eta: That manager/interview woman was so rude slurping her coffee during the interview.


And what's with the stoopid big hand thing?

Blimey that Stephen couldn't inspire a class room let alone a work force ;@(
Just want to tell him to stop talking bollox and cut to the chase, 2 bob streak of paralysed pi$$.
Poxy mission statement speak, vague nonsense that leaves the whole room doing the nodding dog.

Part of the reason I now work in construction/cranage 'pick up, put it down, don't kill nobody'

Shame that's not the middle finger because it's fairly obvious it's what these managers give their passengers.

Just goes to show they can spend zillions on new stations but at the end of the day it's wallpapering over the cracks.

They have them in my local Asda to point at empty checkouts!
