We all are aware of the trauma that we go through every day while boarding our trains. But transport minister Simon Burns finally realized what it’s like to take train to work.
Usually used to being driven around, taking the train seemed quite troubling for UK MP Simon Burns! The Transport Minister appeared flummoxed as he waited for the 5.58am on the platform.
Mr. Burns was almost baffled as he stood in line to board the train. When the East Anglia train pulled in he was forced to stand in the corridor for the 36 minute journey from Chelmsford to Liverpool Street, when he found his 2nd class carriage was jam-packed.
A Sunday newspaper disclosed that Mr. Burns takes a department car 35 miles from his home in Essex to London at a cost to the taxpayer of £80,000 a year. He had argued he needed to work on confidential Government papers in private during his commute; a claim rejected by the Cabinet Office.
Chastised by the disclosure of his extraordinary display, Mr Burns chose to become familiar with the commuting experience of millions of Britons who travel by a train.
Here are a few pictures of what trouble ordinary people go through in the train every day. An experience that influential and popular people are unable to relate to can might not even think of!
If you are a daily commuter, after going through the pictures, you’ll obviously feel proud of how you live through this everyday and still stay happy achieve your day to day goals!
