You’d like to hope that if you were in charge of the nation’s purse, you’d know what was in it, like the right train ticket for instance.
Which is why I’m so cross about Chancellor George Osborne and his train shenanigans. He was found in first class with a standard ticket.
But he’s not the first to be sitting in the wrong class seat. Others are at it too.
So good on the train employees who are fining/evicting people for not having the correct tickets.
Well done also to them for not giving into rubbish excuses or people who try to say things like ‘do you know who I am?’
We all know the rules. And if any of us lesser mortals get caught out, we suffer the consequences. Why should they be any different?
