. I rarely listen to “Any Questions” but was unlucky enough to catch about 15 minutes of it this evening. Naturally the ubiquitous Ken Livingstone was on the panel – as was putative suicide bomber Jenny Tongue. (She’s a lady, you know) Livingstone was permitted to trot out some amazing claims about his pal and employer Venezuelan thug Hugo Chavez to loud applause from the audience but the bit that struck me was an almost unanimous assault from the panel on all those millions of folks who like to travel by air. Even Peter Hitchens joined in – with the panel droning on about the wonders of rail travel and how IT should be supported. (Not a great transport mode for getting across the Atlantic) This fits into the BBC agenda that air travel should only be for special interest groups like themselves. The plebs should stay at home and restrict their travel mode to bus and train, preferably run by the State.
