JUST before the train rolled out of St Pancras, a family of four sat down across from us.
The dad, a tubsy, goateed fellow who looked like someone who starts lots of sentences with "I'm not being funny, but ...", had taken out a mobile phone that looked like it could pilot a 747. He'd started watching a football match online. Loudly.
My wife leaned over the aisle and, in the voice she usually reserves for the people at the power company, asked him if perhaps he could locate and deploy some headphones.
"Oh, don't like the football, do you?" he said.
