If you tell enough stories, perhaps the moral will show up.



Every morning lately, when I've been there to see, a train of twenty or so flatcars each with twelve colossal steel billets heads east, to Ashford and I guess the tunnel. This morning they were behind a class 92. In my mind this question: If the country is so prosperous that the government can offer flexible working hours to every employed parent, how can anyone make money exporting raw steel? Am I that detached from the real world?
