Monday 13th April 1981

Finished railways memo for PM. She did commit herself to present size of passenger network - quite stupidly - with no conditions. Asking to be taken for a ride.

Lunch at Lloyds - Morse - Bernard Scott there and he appears to be genuine idiot - he wanted fuel prices down because of our indigenous energy sources.

Moya + boyfriend for dinner - very tired.
