Tube Trouble
It’s curious the way people react when the underground has problems. Last night flash floods created mayhem and several stations closed. Bank station was also closed but this was due to ‘a fire’. These things amuse me. I saw two people crying because the Circle Line had stopped running.

The platforms at Liverpool Street were full of aggression. An announcer suggested bus routes to people. One man didn’t like this, “Why should I have to travel on a bus?”

I quite enjoy these situations, trying to work out alternatives in my head, listening to the groans as a Metropolitan line train comes in with people plastered to the windows. Those mobile calls to Essex, “Nah mate, it’s fucking fucked, I’m going for a pint.”

But I feel for the staff, such a difficult job.
