But first, I have to announce the result of our Mornington Crescent audience response survey. We asked twenty thousand listeners, "How would you rate your level of Mornington Crescent satisfaction?" "Excellent", "Good", or merely "Well above average". And the reply we got back came from a Mrs Trellis of North Wales, who I see has ticked the box marked "Neither good nor bad", and also the boxes marked "Poor", "Very poor", "Really extremely poor", "Words begin to escape me as to quite how poor", and "Buttock-clenchingly piss-poor". In fact, Mrs Trellis sent us back the wrong form. And if there's anyone listening at Virgin Rail wondering where it got to, we'll be happy to forward it.
