Choo chew

As Lord Hall moves to take (claimable) first class rail travel away from BBC employees, we note that (unclaimable) first class has been taken away from him.

From the start of the new GWR franchise last month, the company has declassified first class accommodation on Class 165/1 Networker Turbo trains, to increase capacity. These are the trains normally used for Lord Hall's favoured start to the working day - the 0744 Henley to Paddington, one of the UK's most crowded services.

Worse for Lord Hall - whilst some of the old 1st Class insignia remains, the sliding doors to the compartment have been secured open. More or less any Tom, Dick or Harry can now express views on last night's tv. He may be wearing dark glasses by now....
