As much as I hate to admit it Mr Photios got it right today. Yes there was a
derailment and two were killed but not on the western line and not for any of the
silly reasons these twits are going on about yet again tonight Mr Photios has gone
on National TV and made the wild claims yet again.No Mr Photios, we dont need an
urgent inquiry into the latest accident because the coroner will investigate it and
hand down his findings.
