    Default Chaos in London - can I have 5 mins with Mr Crow in a dark alley....

    Yet another Tube strike. When is it all going to end? The pavements this morning were over-run with people and in someplaces, where they spilled over onto the Euston Rd, it was quite dangerous.

    I am not massively impacted but this fella seems to be out of control - playing with a screw loose and able to influence a large number of people.

    Not helped that a lot of my current "colleagues" seem to not have a problem with him despite bitching about their journeys in!!

    Oh well, at least there is a smiley to give to the man in question.....!

    Pretty normal journey for me in today - I think most people have made it in to today which is good because if it shows that tube strikes aren't stopping people getting in to work.

    If I was a tube worker and knew there were cuts coming in I wonder if I'd take the day off on strike of go in and help form the skeleton crew to keep London moving...

    Hopefully if anything these strikes should make it easier for LT to identify who stays and who gets chopped

    Took me 1:15 to get to site today.

    Three packed buses went by before I sardined onto the 3rd.

    Certainly not as smooth as my normal tube run, but not a major issue.
    Never has a man been heard to say on his death bed that he wishes he'd spent more time in the office.

    Bob Crow can kiss my arse. I don't use the tube. I always walk from the rail terminus, only about a mile.

    Can I just say that I don't really care about the tube strike because I don't use the tube?

    Please, do, I'm in the same postion - London is awful.

    As for Bob Crow - why pick on him? He can't do this stuff single-handed - what about all the people on strike?
