Tricky, but I sympathise with them having seen pics of the Tube! I am wary just going to the corner shop!

The state of the tube is something that makes no sense to me. You know that it's going to be busy so you cut services meaning you have even more people crammed into the trains. You have to either shut the service down entirely or increase size or the number of tube trains running so that you can spread out the passengers.
They cut services because they were so down on staff
Well, whatever nevermind

Doesn't stop them from extending the trains to increase capacity and space.

Like that would work

The thing they got wrong was not stopping Crossrail construction as that loaded up the trains they could run with 30% less staff
Well, whatever nevermind

trying to decide if we can drive to exercise.  One police force says no so the idiot papers are reporting that as all the police

Places you don't want to go for a walk - roads right near me.  Supposed to be 30mph but narrow, no pavements and no one sticks to 30 not even the trucks
Well, whatever nevermind
