Vote for the `dreadful' man

Sir: Steven Norris describes people who use the public transport system, for which he has ministerial responsibility, as "dreadful human beings" ("Public transport minister says it's better by car", 9 February).

As a user of public transport, may I remind Mr. Norris that these "dreadful human beings" have one vital talent which he seems to have overlooked, namely, the ability to put a cross against a name on a ballot paper. When the next election comes, I trust that all my fellow "dreadful human beings" will remember just what he and his party really think of public transport users.

Yours faithfully,


Caldicot, Gwent
