I just watched the programme .......

The Hub on BBC and they did a report on the new 'high speed' Beijing to Shanghai line ...........

Here they did not highlight the technology and the advances for trains in China to travel at 306 kph .........

They simply focused in the main lead and the skit on the $60 price tag and the fact that this was out of the reach of millions of peasant farmers .............


I wonder if these geniuses did this when Concord was first rolled out ..............  

Or even the new giant Airbus  ..................   


Or did they focus on what a great step-forward this was  ...........     


No wonder I despair at the UK and their biased proll based media  ...............

Yes .............

A great achievement for China ...........

A serious fail by the core UK media  ............


Oh dear ............

$60 per ticket ............

Beijing to Shanghai ..................   



So do the plebs in the Western countries get cheap tickets  .............   ?   .........   



I don't think so ................   


Shame they do not highlight it  ...............

Do you know what happened to the "Concord" and to the Russian counterpart ?

- unsafe technology

- uneconomic technology

- economic flop after all

People can learn from such mistake - or not !

Why should tzhey focus on what is generally and universally known? Why would the British public be interested in German, French and Japanese railway technology rather than the exorbitant prices Chi ...

Well ..............

It is generally and universally well-known that China has become richer ..........

But I doubt the average proll in Europe would know that China is becoming so much more technologically enabled ........

Exorbitant fares ..............   

Why I went just 100 miles to London by train not long back and it cost 110 pounds .........

Now compare that to Beijing to Shanghai ...........

Then of course enlighten me as to another way to cover the cost of this journey more cheaply in 5 hours ........

And you could become a God in my eyes .............   



I will not hold my breath on that one ................

Well obviously you do not know what happened to Concorde ............

And it was certainly not unsafe technology, but rather the design .........

If a lump of junk from an American plane had not been left on the runway Concord would have had a perfect record ............


The rest of your sentiments do not make sense .........

Maybe because you kicked it off on the wrong path .............


Make sure you wear a hat when you go outside ........

The heat can cause you many problems in cognitive thought patterns  ..........


Ohh ........  !

And watch out for the trolley buses ...........

Sorry to interrupt you again with reality:

I don't know what kind of ticket you went on in the UK,

No Idea if your Story contains any remote Familiarity to Reality,
but your it Kind of reminds me of the interesting Fairy Tale of the Official in the Thread,

Of course, the direct information from bahn.de will all be disregarded as propaganda lies by you,
won't they?

And Why tell the Brits about French German and Japanese Technology in a bit about China?

Your link will not load and your post makes no sense  .........

Maybe less smileys would be appropriate ...........

Until you could at least express your ideas in a more lucid manner  .......

As I have no idea what your point is ...........
