Who would have thought it?

According to a survey by Barclaycard and reported in today’s papers, business travellers are in favour of airport-style security at all rail and tube stations.  Just trying to get my head around this…  people who predominantly travel at somebody else’s expense and probably in ‘company time’ ((and probably in first class with a guaranteed seat)) are in favour of measures that would add enormous costs to rail travel and cause endless delays.  I wonder what commuters who have to buy their own tickets and for whom every delay represents a chunk of their free time stolen think about it?

Is it a ploy by business travellers to make rail travel even more expensive and slower than it is so that they can make a sound business case for travelling by car instead as a cost-saving measure?  (Answer: no. But that’s how it would end up)
