Transport Minister Mr Baker explained: ‚??When I arrived at Lewes Station, I found to my dismay that engineering works meant there were no trains to Seaford, although the day before the station had only been warning of engineering works between Bexhill and Ashford.
‚??I then went out to take the rail replacement bus only to find it had broken down and the rail replacement bus itself would have to be replaced by a bus replacement bus!
‚??I couldn‚??t even drive to Seaford as my wife had taken the car.
‚??I am sorry to disappoint my regular listeners but, Southern willing, I will be back next Sunday at 10am as usual.‚?Ě
Got to say that whilst I loathe Baker`s pinko politics I do rate him for taking the train and getting stuck like anyone else.

I saw Norman on Sunday 6th walking passed WHSmith. He seemed much taller than he looks on the tele...but sadly he is just as ugly.

Taxi for Mr Baker? as the replacement service was not functioning he could have got as refund too.
BTW There was a round on Only Connect last night - "Things that are carcinogenic according to the Daily Mail" - included Facebook, till receipts and grapefruit.

stormin norman used to regularly visit my grandmother out at ringmer many years ago , my gran always thought he was down to earth, honest and sincere, qualities that she said would hinder him if he ever became an MP she certainly never thought he was ugly but there again she was a Lady from Ringmer, not a Lewes Lady

I have heard various unsolicited testimonies to Norman Baker going right out of his way to help people. Not my kind of thing politically but a decent man.

A recommendation from you Paul in most peoples opinion, must surely be the kiss of death for Mister Baker at the next election.Baker is a spineless buffoon without a pricipled bone in his body, end of story.

Just remind what this fine upstanding fellow's position was on tuition fees before he became a minister? And his line on banking bonuses? And his line on NHS reforms? He is a collaborator who ditches his professed principles for the status of office, like all Lib Dems in the government.
Lest we forget!
