image for Outcry At Plans To Rename Railway Station
The longest tunnel in railway history, the 1997 tunnel

The plan to rename a famous railway station has met with outcry. It had been announced that Tony Blair Station was to be returned to it's original name. Thatcher Central. The move has sparked protests from diehard members of the Labourist party who still view Blair as a hero of the 1997 revolution.

Peter Mandyevich said "Tony will always be remembered. We cannot allow this to happen. We fought a bitter struggle to change the face of Britain. When we came to power the nation's railways had been sold off and were expensive, badly run and in a very depressed state. Now they are expensive, badly run, in a depressed state and we haven't finished yet."

The government has backtracked (oops) on the original announcement. A spokesperson said "We are still not decided. It is early days. This leak was not officially sanctioned. Chairman Broon has not officially decided yet. Obviously to remember Tony Blair would be to remember some unpleasant moments in our history. And there are many who want a return to the golden age before we came to power."

Tony Blair Station is on the Great Southern Railway route that runs from Cherie Blair Parkway in the South to Trousered Cash Central.
