Sounds familiar. Dr Beeching is the one who's always blamed for junking the railways in the UK; he was given that job by the Transport Minister of the time, one Ernest Marples. The fact that Marples's road-building firm was in at the start of building the UK's motorway system is, of course, a mere detail.
