On the proposal to abolish first class rail travel as standard for MPs

Among the most vocal critics of this plan is Conservative MP Sir Nicholas Winterton, who has suggested passengers who travel in standard class are “a totally different type of people”.

Actual quote: “They [standard-class passengers] are a totally different type of people – they have a different outlook on life. They may be reading a book but I doubt whether they’re undertaking serious work or study.”
