Former Liberal Democrat Leader Tim Farron has slammed the Transport Secretary for living in a ‘parallel world’ as the RMT calls for him to be sacked. Mr Farron said:
“Chris Grayling is always happy to blame everyone but himself for the delays, cancellations and other problems facing so many train users.
“He seems to live in a parallel world to everyone else, where the running of trains is totally unrelated to himself and his Department.
“People are being forced to miss hospital appointments, work and exams. The Transport Secretary needs to wake up to this and act, not least before the public have had enough and it is too late for him.”
