Re: That's the icing on the cake
"... for himself by asking this question to him when, really, it wasn't the time or place."
Sorry, so what you're saying is that Journos should stick only the approved subjects they are told to ask questions on? If that is the case, then I am so glad you're not in charge, you're as bad as Murdock ffs. How long is it before you start saying Journos should have their questions pre-approved?
"He wanted to sit with his wife, so finding two unreserved seats next to each other wasn't possible."
So here we are saying that this wasn't a case of "Corby couldn't get a seat", but actually "Corby couldn't get a group of seats together", sorry, but if you ever use public transport, it should be fairly sodding obvious that if you want a group of seats together, you sodding well book, or live with the various smattering of seats available.
I don't know who thought up this piece of cock awful propaganda but the fact that that mendacious bastard allowed a poorly presented piece of theatre to go out and THEN is pissed when he gets called on it bewilders the hell out of me. I know, it shouldn't, but it does.
Oh, and for the record, it should never be ok to take a political swipe at a private entity but deny that entity the right to defend itself, and yes, I know that the Rail Service is fairly shocking in this country, but lying like a weasel to prove a point is NOT ok.
