Listen in, listen Ian!
I was late for work this morning. The 9.32 was cancelled and the next train was delayed until after ten, so I caught the bus to Archway and got the tube in instead. Incidentally, why is it that the CBI never seem to pluck a number out of the air to tell us how much management fuckups are costing the economy. When lots of people are ill because of a deadly plague, they're only too eager to assign made up monetary values to the behaviour of the workshy, but when it's their friends, there's nothing of the sort. Incidentally, you may like to note the absence of the phrase "Employing a sufficient number of drivers" in the "What we're doing to ease the situation" section of that First Crapital Connect page.

I'm not really as grumpy as that paragraph makes me sound, because I was reading BBC Wildlife Magazine1 on the way here, and it had great pictures of leopards in which cheered me up, including one in which a leopard had dragged a giraffe that it had caught up a tree to eat. There was also an advert for a trip to go and see Birds of Paradise, but sadly I don't have £10,250 to spare. Sigh.

I bet you 10p that when they have more drivers next year, the current "work to rule" ones will go on strike again in protest at lack of overtime and not being allowed to work on rest days.

That first paragraph is brilliant, don't get apologetic about it!
