    I remember working out that it would have been possible, on a Saturday, to have a return trip to Avignon, with about three hours there. I might have done that more often than I use any train here now.

    It is very easy to become cynical when we've been subject to such run of pretentious bullshit over the years about stuff that never happens, fails to meet declared expectations or turns out to be just futile.

    Lots of things "remain a high priority" until people have forgotten about them.

    Enough time to cross the magnificently completed bridge.

    The noise from the pile-driver this afternoon was bizarre - anybody working around there would be glad if the place was never built, I expect.

    Whatever happened to vibratory pile-drivers?

    Everyone needs something to aim for, no matter how out of reach it might be.

    If HS2 stops at Stafford and this 'exciting' new development goes ahead then Stafford will be just another London commuter town!

    Very true but at least it is still mainly Brummies and Yam Yams, not too many with terrible cockney accents yet!

    Is it true that under the new plans that the secret tunnel from stafford town centre to the castle will be developed as part of an integrated underground transport system?

    Stafford's version of 'women and children first' used to be 'Sandy, Evans and Greatrex first'.

    It really depends on what you are doing in those 25 minutes
