First day of the new timetable has started off in the worst way possible with what seems like every train being cancelles!

Re: Extending Oyster To Hertford East

Re: Who will come second?

Driving around both Hertford and Stortford (the towns, not the surrounding areas) I've seen quite a few Labour posters but very few [if any] Tory or Libdem. I too look out for these. I did manage to find one Tory supporter in Fordwich Rise. It looks likely that we will have another coalition which ...
