Less to be cut from transport - Official

Good news from Petrol-head's new improved Department for Transport!

In the first round of government spending cuts a massive 11% was shaved off the Transport budget.

However, yesterday's Daily Express contained the following encouraging news:

METRIC measurements of distance have been banned by the new Transport Secretary in official communications dealing with Britain’s road, rail and air network.

Good news indeed.

After all, cutting 1,000 miles of railway sounds so much more palatable than 1,609 kilometers.
