Now that everyone’s back at work again, and particularly with the overland trains crowded with Tube refugees, it seems a recap is in order. We should all now be familiar with the fact that feet and bags do not get a seat. Other things that do not get a seat are, in no particular order, your newspaper, your jacket, your lunchbox, your lunch, your breakfast and your dog. There. I hope that’s clear. Perhaps I should start using Merseyrail, where they don’t mess about on this issue.
Meanwhile, I hope Ken’s congratulated the RMT on its contribution to his target of increasing cycling rates in London. This morning in my office alone there were two brand new fresh minted cyclists coming in all flushed and excited from the adrenaline rush, and if the streets and Vauxhall’s bike racks were anything to go by, they weren’t the only ones.
