Petrol-head declares war on staff costs

Philip Hammond has declared war on industry staff costs!

And quite right too!

At a conference today he said:

"A 21st century rail network needs 21st century employment practices, from the boardroom to the shop floor."

"With fares and levels of taxpayer support already so high, it would be simply irresponsible for us to ignore this issue any longer.

"Addressing inefficient working practices and excessive wage demands will form a key part of the strategy for building a sustainable and affordable railway" added the multi-millionaire Secretary of State.

'Nuff said.
