Man takes train, secures newspaper headline

The man in question being Albert Arnold Gore Jr. Having flown from the US to Oslo, that he got the equivalent of the Gatwick Express from the airport to the city centre has the Norwegians agog, as VIPs (God I loathe that concept) normally get a car into town.

Not that this should be seen as a publicity stunt, of course.

Sensible fellow. The train is much cheaper than taxis which cost an absolute fortune for that trip.

Al Gore and publicity stunt in the same sentence - shame on you!

He did not deserve a Nobel prize. Can you imagine the Nobel prize for Economics going to someone who made a dozen errors and unsubstantiated claims in the course of their work? They would be labelled incompetent. Yet this man is feted. Truly the apocolypse etc etc.

Richard - consider my head duly hung.

Tony - I fear I can hear the thundering hooves....
