Sir Nicholas Winterton has angrily denounced plans to reduce first-class travel by MPs - telling the BBC he needs "quiet" and privacy to work.
"But in order to be able to do that they need to be able to sit down, and you can't always do that in standard class... and you also need quiet and sadly, you don't very often get that in standard class.
"If I was in standard class I would not do work because people would be looking over your shoulder the entire time, there would be noise, there would be distraction."
"There's lots of children, there's noise, there's activity. I like to have peace and quiet when I'm travelling."
Thoughts on this people?
1) He should book his train to guarantee a seat and in advance too - save the tax payer money & use a rail card.
2) Get a privacy filter on his laptop
3) He obviously hasn't heard of the Standard Class Quiet coaches
