Well, here's a tough call. As Our Man in Abiko, should Our Man be happy or sad over this story of awarding a 7.5 billion-quid contract for trains to a Japanese-led consortium? Well, nice work if you can get it. The cartoon is the Grauniad's excellent Steve Bell's take on the story. Our Man says, work's work. Maybe Japan will reciprocate by keeping the Toyota lines running in Derby, where the Bombardier trains would have been made.
