I'm sure we will all be shedding tears tonight over the premature ending of the Virgin/Stagecoach franchise to run the East Coast Mainline. No need here to repeat all the reasons why public ownership of the railways is better. But I am sincerely hoping that the faux jolly and schmucky Americanised lingo employed by Virgin's public image enhancement team will also disappear pronto. The prospect is AWESOME! Here's to a HEADS UP that Virgin's patronising schpeak will be GOOD TO GO and that the email from them which I received this evening headed "Can't see this email? Click here to see it in all its glory," announcing their departure will be the last! Have a nice day!!
