One of the quotes below was uttered this week by a Tory politician and the other by Labour Mayor:

My message to the unions is also clear: stop the strikes now and get back around the negotiating table.

I hope she will join me in urging all sides in this dispute to return to the negotiating table and reach an agreement that puts the needs of passengers first

Can you guess which was which?

In fact, the former was tweeted by London Mayor Sadiq Khan to his two-and-a-half million followers, while the latter was said by Under-Secretary of State for Transport, Paul Maynard during the 5 December Commons debate on Southern Rail.

If you got it wrong, it’s completely excusable, because there’s no substantive difference between the two.
