Snow joke

Completely agree with this post by Pete Ashton. It’s a pet hobby-horse of mine (one of many!). Comparing the way the UK copes with severe weather with what happens in cold places is completely daft – those places know it’s going to be cold 50% of the time, and build a transport infrastructure in anticipation.

In the UK we get snow like we’re seeing now once every 10 years or so – the additional cost involved for us to provide 100% reliability through such a rare event would be enormous, and no taxpayer or fare-payer would stomach it for a moment.
