I'm sick of this obsession with the NHS. What about other public services? My family uses the education system way more than the NHS but it doesn't have the totemic effect that the NHS seems to have on people.

I wouldn't hold your breath with Grayling in charge of transport. I seem to recall the best he could do was to verbally encourage people to buy petrol cars, no financial incentive was proposed.

Lloyd George was a legend. Apparently he had a bed next to his office for his extra marital activities. Kitchener said he didn't tell the cabinet military details because they'd tell their wifes but Lloyd George would tell someone else's wife!

When I lived in Ipswich some twenty years ago the lights went off in the small hours down my road. It made sense to me, not many people abroad at that time of night.

It's an anonymous forum! I used to be a member of Prospect for what it's worth. I stand by my earlier comments via a via the people involved at a local level in my former trade union.
