Bit of a discriminatory travel offer! @GaryWinstanley For Andorra that’s what I’d like to know given it’s a landlocked country and France doesn’t have that restriction yetSupposed to be making my annual pilgrimage to Andorra next month and then this happens @Paula36169898 Shopping at Waitrose @ManaboutLdn Bearing in mind how steep the ladders are to get in and out of them, I’m not sure she’s wearing the best clothing! @ManaboutLdn ROC Observation Post - I’ve been in a few of those :-)

@seatsixtyone Makes me wonder why catering on our own trains - when it comes back - can’t be to an equally high standard @yamesh @philrichardsuk I was being somewhat tongue in cheek but don’t disagree.

@TheFactCompiler @christianwolmar I always use “Turn incoming video off” on long meetings on Teams :-) @TheFactCompiler @paulbyrail @LNER Indeed, I was just joshing with Paul about “longish” @paulbyrail @LNER M&S at Kings Cross probably a safer ( and cheaper :-) ) bet ( sorry LNER, your catering is lovely as well ) @phil_dfc Absolutely gutted with this news.
