Clearly, Tewkesbury is a very important place for it’s MP. I’m not sure that many in the rest of the country would share Mr Robertson’s view of its importance though.
“There’s a train only every one hour and 52 minutes,” Mr Robertson told the House of Commons. “On a lot of the trains you have to change if you want to come to London. The cost of an open return is £139. This really is a very, very poor service between a very important area of the country and London.”
Hmm… Tewkesbury, such an important town that its station in called Tewkesbury Grand Central Ashchurch.
