    Wonderful isn't it? £46 million of crumbs from the table, for necessary improvements to a large number of stations around the country, but £500 million for improvements at a single station (Bank) in central London (see NCE last week).

    Are the Government's priorities right? Does a world exist outside the metropolis?
