Gravy train derailed

A gravy train was derailed in Holland yesterday. The 'EU Constitution' was half way through it's whistlestop tour of Europe when it happened. Retired Train guard Neil Kinnock (still on the payroll) blamed the crash on the ignorant Dutch, "They removed all the track. We couldn't do anything about it. We just didn't stand a chance. When will these damn people realise trains need tracks to run properly, not the peoples' support?". Dutch Police are still investigating how so much track was removed so quickly.

Thankfully, there have been no fatalities but many egos have been bruised, some critically. As they surveyed the sorry scene, locals celebrated. Initially, it was thought the steam train could be repaired, but it now appears a write off. The driver and passengers are still expected to try and complete their journey but in an anonymous coach to avoid any further conflict with the people.
