Quote of the week

Taken from Christian Wolmar's regular RAIL column, in detailing the comings and goings of Transport Secretaries over the past few years:

"Then came Geoffrey Who?, one of those machine politicians with as much charisma as the rear end of a hippopotamus and all the sincerity of a timeshare salesman."

I've always thought there's a fair resemblance between former Transport Secretary Geoff Hoon and past Dr Who actor Peter Davidson. Perhaps Who? is a more suitable name for him?

Are they related? I think we should be told! (GL)
