Shoots from the hip

Adrian Shooter, Chairman of DB owned Laing Rail, is not backward in coming forward.

Thus in today's Transit we read:

"From day one I've been on the IEP group... I told (DafT Civil Serpent) Mark Lambirth that the whole thing was ridiculous - a stupid way to procure a train."

So far so good.

But then it emerges that Shooter no longer attends the meetings.

And furthermore, that he is an 'informal advisor' to Tory shadow Transport SofS, Teresa Villiers.

Adrian - are you surprised no one in DafT is listening?
