AND FINALLY: Railway on time

Maggie Simpson, executive director of the Rail Freight Group, was nearing the end of her presentation at the UK Rail Industry Forum last Wednesday. The chairman leaned over and urged her to hurry up, saying she was over-running her time. She paused, looked at her watch and said: “I have two minutes left. Just because the last panel session, which you chaired, overran by 15 minutes, I don’t see why I should be cut short.” She ended on time, to much applause.
