ORR fails to look gift horse in mouth

Telegrammed by Leo Pink
It seems that Polyanna Walker , the new-ish ORR Chair, doesn't really understand what Sir Roy McNulty is about.

Here she is responding to the latest passenger dissatisfaction survey.

"The railway quickly needs to get a handle on these issues. Over the coming months, the Rail Value for Money review led by Sir Roy McNulty will provide the entire rail industry with a platform to explore ways in which we can work together to help deliver the improvements that passengers are calling for."

No, Polyanna, you need to work out the difference between Knights on White Horses and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

Sir Roy is one of the latter and his job is not to provide platforms but take at least £2 billion out of the taxpayer's support for the railway.
