I came to my head office today on the train via London (always fun) .
It's usually pretty speedy and BS5 morphs into Paddington in about 90 minutes but today that leg of the journey took three and a half hours owing to all trains within a sniff of Paddington being held on a red signal for 90 minutes.
This happened at Slough. There was not much to look at out of the window (or on the train really) so I read my new book and chilled out. It was quite fun to sit there and observe people getting excited and changing plans. I read a wadge of pages in my Oliver Cromwell biography and remained calm. And scoffed my sarnies!
As I was on the train the news came through about the Lockerbie bomber gaining compassionate release. I think this is the right decision and is decent (and dare I say it) Christian. The chap who made the decision made a decent statement to justify his choice and it was couched in humanitarianism. I know the Americans are largely aghast but I think the humanity should cut through that.
Here endeth a post that has seen rare seriousness on Blog BS5!
