Keep taking the cocoa

Tubes still not workingAt 8am this morning TfL is still reporting that 9 out of 12 Tube lines are out of use. TfL and RMT had 9 hours of talks yesterday from 2.30pm to near midnight.

In the nice cup of cocoa city, London, it seems our public transport quango is incapable of robust contingency planning.

In spite of having curtailed services at 5pm, an hour ahead of the strike on Monday, to get trains back to depots it still can’t get them going again quickly. You might imagine that this vital public service could work through the night to get us all back to work this morning but no.

Keep taking the cocoa.
