The cream of Franco-British collaboration and torch-bearer of the legacy of Concorde! Yes, I’m waxing lyrical, I bloody love Eurostar going from St Pancras Int’l, wouldn’t dream of going to Paris any other way. It’s mad that flying costs less, when we’re supposed to be targeting carbon-neutral. In fact, cut the pussy-footing, we should ban all flights under 1 hour, including international.

But my loyalty has been severely tested this Bank Holiday Saturday, by-jimminy, not because my Beloved Eurostar broke down. No, the engine is purring blissfully just as it should. My full cup of tea on its perch is rippling just as it should. Not because of the breakfast which was light and odourless. Not because of the in-flight personnel who are relighting my will to live. I asked my one about the cattle market situation and he looked pained. ‘It makes it hard for us, the passengers arrive all riled up’.
