Six days to go until the Commonwealth Games…
I (with my PTUA hat on) got an invitation to the swimming, plus a breakfast function hosted by John Thwaites. We had a chat about it and decided that given it wasn’t a lobbying opportunity, it wasn’t appropriate for an organisation that regularly criticises the government to accept the tickets.
Besides — 7:45am on a Saturday? You gotta be kidding. That’s serious sleeping-in time. So I turned it down.
By the way, regular train users: given how bad Connex was in February, if you have a monthly or longer ticket, send it in for compensation. A free Daily ticket isn’t much, but it’s better than nothing.
