Hammond moans about lost opportunities

Well that didn't take long!

A mere month into his new role ruining Britain's transport sector (shurely 'running'? Ed) Petrol-head Hammond is already whinging to the Spectator that he should have had the Chief Secretary to the Treasury job.

This from Politics Home:

In an interview to published in tomorrow’s Spectator, the transport secretary talks about missing out as chief secretary to the treasury.

He says of David Law’s resignation: “If I had been a Liberal Democrat I would have been there before him.”

Perhaps a novel way to inspire confidence in a sector that has already been hit disproportionately hard by the first tranche of budget cuts.

Well Phil, you weren't our first choice either...
