Coucher - Laird of all he surveys?

Has there been a falling out between Network Rail and the Observer?

This from Nick Cohen in yesterday's paper...

Ever since the Clearances, the nouveaux riches have aped the aristocracy and paid to play the highland gentleman. Coucher stood out from his predecessors, however. The new laird of Keills, the monarch of his very own glen, was, to all outward appearances, an undistinguished civil servant on a second-rate railway board.


UPDATE: This from Steve Strong...

Have any of Eye's readers noticed this extraordinary topographical lookalike?

Perhaps Mr Coucher aspires to live the lifestyle of Sir Beardie of Bendydildo?

UPDATE: This from Is 1A03 out of Chester yet, Bert?...

Now they're all getting in on the act!
