Farewell Phil

So, Farewell Phil. You weren't here very long, but you managed to announce the closure of all ticket offices and a thousand job cuts before jumping ship and boarding HMS Network Rail.

We're sure it was tough, but equally sure that you were handsomely rewarded for your efforts, and will continue to be so in your new post.

So, what do you leave us with, as you depart the day before contactless payment comes in (well done for dodging that one, btw)? A dog's breakfast of a 'Fit for the Future' policy that everyone knows will widen inequalities, drive out and demoralise loyal staff, and really piss off many of our valued customers.

The management (and the Mayor) whom Phil has left behind to deal with the mess may reflect that it is time for Fit for the Future to depart too.

Good luck for the future, Mr Hufton. And wish us luck too. We may well need it
