The race to chair NR starts here!

So. Farewell then Ricky Haystacks.

You came, showed Iain the door, installed Hurricane Higgins and yet in 10 months time you too will be gone. Now the search for your successor begins.

With such a daunting task before NR's recruitment consultants Eye is keen to be of assistance.

Therefore our latest exciting survey asks the question:

Who should chair Network Rail

Remember - the Chairman's role is to lead the board and ensure harmonious relations with key stakeholders

So what are you waiting for - this could be your opportunity to shape the railway of tomorrow!

Here are Eye's runners and riders in the Career Development Handicap

  • A Jammy Dodger
  • Beau Bowker
  • Captain Permatan
  • Chris 'Red' Green
  • Ivor the Engine
  • Tom 'ACPO' Winsor
  • Rail Barbie
  • Slugger O'Toole
  • Tinky Winky
Remember vote early, vote often.

UPDATE: This from @bendolino, via Twitter...

I nominate the Chanel 9 team from the Fast Show.

"OLE Speed 1? Scorchio!"

UPDATE: This from the Major...

No mention of Rob 'HS1' Holden?

Then again I'm not sure how serious Eye is about some of the names on the list.

I mean Tinky Winky for goodness sake, when are the MoD ever likely to release her?
