Im Back !!!

Well its been a long time since I contributed anything to this blog. Does that mean I have had stress free tube travel??? Well I have to say since I moved to the Earls Court area and away from the dreadful Wimbledon spur of the district line things have improved immensely. Earls court always has trains even though they sometimes sit on the platform FULL of people for 5 or more minutes while the signals change !!! Its a good time for the drivers to catch up on gossip and the latest news. They seem to be having a jolly jape while we wait to be trundled (yes trundled) to work. Is it me or is the underground the slowest form of transport in the world. I think earls court to tower hill is about 7 miles and it takes 36 mins. Now even allowing for loading and unloading that is bloody SLOW isnt it. 6.3 minutes per mile 13 stops 3.5 mins per stop yet each stop is an average of 1 km apart. Somethings wrong

The other mystery at the moment is how long it is going to take to finsh the renovations at earls court. Its been over 2 years now and we are still impeded by scaffolding. What an eyesore. And when are you going to renovate the outside of the station on the Warwick road side. Magnificent 30s architecture dulled by neglect of philistines

Finally, I saw Bob "the nob" Crow on tv yesterday. What a marvellous hero of the workers!!!! My polish plumber speaks better english and has more brain cells in his toe than that crafty fucker. He has managed to keep himself above ground on a fat paycheck and company perks for years all paid for by the public that he so regularly incoveniences. You see even in the commie red RMT some brothers are more equal than others eh?? wink wink nudge nudge say no more.
