Yet again the week’s crazy campaign award goes to Mop Denson. Yes, the person who who brought us the bonkers campaign against leather seats has managed to come up with another classic…


Without the slightest trace of irony, Mop claims there’s ‘comedy’ in the photo of Ed Balls in an empty First Great Western 1st Class coach en-route to Cardiff. We’re not told where he’s coming from, what day – or even what time of day. But hey, why should facts matter to Mop?

Of course, the real comedy is in Mop claiming a man on a train to Cardiff has any relevance at all to rail capacity on the WCML, or Hs2. You might as well claim that because a bus between Skipton & Bradford is half empty we should scrap London bus improvements.

If this sort of bonkers nonsense is meant to swing voters on the last day of campaigning for the general election it’s easy to see why the anti Hs2 mob have had such a lousy election campaign.


The level of frothing on Twitter is beginning to rival a Fairy Liquid factory – so I have to give a mention in dispatches to this UKIP Tweeter for his supremely bonkers comment that Hs2 is ‘insanity gone mad’…


I’ve a small favour to ask…
