Currently sitting across the aisle from me round a 4 seater in a classic Virgin Pendolino dragging me from Glasgow to Crewe, are a wee Scouse family of three - a young dad, a girl of about 3 and a boy of about 5. And I actually love them.
  1. The dad is excellent. He's fun, firm and loving - he responds to them consistently and constantly. He has an incredibly thick Scouse accent and the kids copy his sayings occasionally.
  2. The children are super confident, and asked me very politely where I was going. They then proudly announced they were from Liverpool.
  3. They are alternating shots on a Nintendo DS playing a game which routinely announces "this is the 2012 olympics!" in an inappropriately American accent.
