Plus ça change
It was the French journalist and critic Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr who first coined the phrase "plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose" as long ago as 1849. Usually translated as "the more things change, the more they stay the same", it quickly entered every day language on both sides of the Channel. It seemed to me particularly appropriate for this section of the web site.
It is designed to contain an archive of previous articles and commentaries written over the years since I began my career as a commentator and analyst way back in 1987. As you'll see, many of them do indeed prove Monsieur Karr's theory: in transport certainly, as I suspect in many other areas of life, we continue to grapple with many of the same issues as our predecessors.
