Travel Chaos!…The BBC’s favourite phrase.


So I mentioned that there was some snow forecast…and they were correct, about 10cm I guess. Speaking of Canadians…they’d have a chuckle at the state that Brits get into the few times per winter that it snows. I have heard the phrase “travel chaos” on the radio and TV this morning about a dozen times. I guess this is because no one has winter tyres/tires on their cars and there some but not a lot of snow clearing vehicles

So, these factors and the fact that such seemingly innocuous things as “leaves on the line” stop trains in the autumn, means it’s not surprising that “chaos happens”.

Oh well, at at least the rolling news channels will have something to talk about that isn’t to do with carnage in Baghdad. There hasn’t been travel chaos since before Christmas, so we’re overdue!
