Platform blues

Michael Fabricant must have made Simon Hoggart's day today at transport questions.

Michael Fabricant (Lichfield) (Con): Does the right hon. Lady understand that it is not much fun standing on a platform and a high-speed train sucks you off because of the turbulence —[Laughter]— or whatever. The important thing is that the train should stop, so will she bear in mind the fact that high-speed trains should go not just from major centres of population to other major centres of population but, as the hon. Member for Huddersfield (Mr. Sheerman) said, to some of our great cities, including the great city of Lichfield?

Being sucked off by a train, methinks that is more innocent than it sounds.

Still worthy of a childish snigger.
