The Transport Secretary Philip Hammond talks to John Pienaar and guests about high speed trains, strikes and petrol price hikes. He confirms to 5 live that the Government is looking at the idea of a fair fuel stabiliser.

And as the stage play of the hit TV series Yes Prime Minister ends its run in the West End, John asks members of the audience whether they feel the play had a ring of truth to it; is our whole system of Government built on hypocrisy, lies, double standards and double dealing?
