Ladies, I'm a feminist and I will actively fight our cause till my boobs hit the floor and I breathe my last breath through my Chanel lipstick but oh my goodness am I embarrassed by your behaviour lately.

Imagine the situation: you're on the train to a meeting, going over some papers and you need to leave the carriage to go grab a coffee from the buffet car. What do you do with your briefcase? You'll only be gone two minutes and your laptop is safely stowed in the office, so what's the harm in leaving it on your seat?

Public transport is a common method of travel by many people across the globe, yet somehow some people still haven't mastered the art of getting it right.

It is what we non-pregnant ladies dread. Being offered a seat on public transport. To us, it simply means you are either too old or too fat. And the fact you have actually shamed someone into giving up their seat - commuters will understand the significance of this during rush hour.

The Trams!

Permutation upon permutation of exasperated expletives have been thrown at the now infamous Edinburgh Tram project. Each time I return to the city after a length of time on tour I expect the fervent dissing of the tram works to have quietened a little, that the city's drivers and pedestrians will have accepted the situation and moved on to another subject of complaint.

With the Bradley Wiggins affect we are truly proving ourselves to be the greatest nation of cyclists. But will it continue? Will the grass roots of talent and cycling enthusiasts be nurtured and will city cycling continue to be promoted?

The doom-mongers gleefully predicted "gridlock", "transport meltdown" and "commuter hell". Monday 30 July was the day it was all supposed to go pear-shaped. To find out what it was actually like I took a tour round some of London's venues by a range of different transport options.

HS2 is Socially Regressive, Environmentally Damaging and Bafflingly Irrational

John Whitelegg | Posted 11.03.2012 | UK Politics

I challenge all those politicians who support HS2 to go out onto the streets and ask real people to choose between spending £17 billion on reducing the journey time for wealthy rail passengers between London and Birmingham by 23 minutes and all the other things we could do for that pot of money.

HS2 - Why Oh Why?

Sadly the idea of building a high speed rail line from North to South is in the news again. The idea is to spend £30bn or so building a new line from London to Birmingham. This will cut journey times, and increase capacity.

This is a historic opportunity, the type which this country too often foregoes through lack of self-confidence. If there is one thing I do not want to see, it is this House debating the issue of inter-city capacity in 10 years time because we averted our eyes from the strategic challenge now.

With more people on the train there will be fewer cars on our roads and fewer people queuing at our airports. As the report states high-speed rail will relieve capacity constraints on existing lines and transfer some 6 million trips from air and 9 million road trips. We will finally have a transport system that delivers what we all need - choice.
