'High Art'? It's utter wank, that's what it is.

And how can a Collett Third from 1938 have ever been hauled by FS? Now, the GN composite, yes.

But I fail to see how graff can ever be considered an art form. I used to get very nervous on Tube trains whenever I saw signs that someone had indulged in so-called 'acid graff' - where highly-dangerous hydrofluoric acid had been used to etch the glass.

Such a bloody shame, especially the teak paneled coach. On RailUK the first comment was from a mailtard, suggesting that they were sent to Saudi but he got shot down by more reasonable folk resulting in the usual passive-aggressive whine.

I suppose the one thing that we should be grateful for - rather like the teak set on the NYMR a few months ago - is that it didn't involve fire.

On a newsgroup (remember those?) I read the following:
It is arguable that the BBC is responsible for the importation of the
habit of "tagging" trains given it made a documentary that was less than
critical of the mess made of New York subway trains back in the 1980s
when it was virtually unknown here.

To revisit this, the SVR Trust have launched an online donation push to raise the £10,000 needed to repair the damage. Fortunately it seems the teak in particular had been due for a go at some point and i was mostly covered in soot, meaning the paint was easier to get off than might otherwise have been the case

Gang of Romanian fraudsters who dished out fake IDs in the name of David Cameron jailed for a total of 22 and a half years
Among the sample IDs found by officers was a mock-up of a driving licence bearing the name and photo the former Tory Prime Minister.

How stupid would that be?

Driver high on cocaine ran over and killed girl, 19, lying in the road who he mistook for a discarded bag
Flaherty, 35, was within the speed limit and stopped at the scene, but was found to have a small amount of cocaine in his system.

Clearly under the limit as he wasn't charged with drug driving.

Deadly tropical disease Monkeypox is diagnosed in the UK for the first time after it was contracted by a visiting naval officer from Nigerian police
PHE said monkeypox does not spread easily and most patients recover within a few weeks, but it can cause severe illness in some people.

Anyone having access to any of the UK's military bases should surely be screened at every level?
Yup. Full health screening for every deliver driver, milkman and postie. No problems... And 1200 green arrows.

And this one?

The history of the Royal Free Hospital fascinates me, even today. It's world class, but how was this person allowed into the country with this?

Ever heard of incubation periods? In the case of MP it is 6 to 16 days but can range from 5 to 21 days. It is highly unlikely that when the person entered that they were ill
