This morning, the train didn't quite make up for its three-minute delay last night, but arrived in Waterloo two minutes early. The tube was on time, so this saved me three minutes in total arriving at work. I make that 26 minutes and £65 to add to the tally in total.
In other news, more posturing and strike threats from Bob Crow as politicians dare to suggest reviewing a pensions system that sees the taxpayer contribute six times as much as the TfL employee. Said Crow:
"Try it and you'll see the biggest wave of industrial action on the London Underground in 30 years. I have a very small penis."OK, fine: that's paraphrasing, not quoting. Seriously, though: I thought Thatcher had broken the trade unions? Looks like she missed one. Any politicians reading this care to pick up where she left off? Seriously, I doubt anyone (except TfL employees) will give you any flack for it. In fact, you wouldn't really be a new Thatcher, more a modern-day Robin Hood.
