Listen in, listen Ian!

I'm not saying it's a slow news day today but two of the top 10 stories on the BBC are the Underground is crowded during the rush hour and Old people sometimes have grey hair.

Trains were stopping early at Old Street again today, but FCC have now admitted that as publicansdecoy mentioned yesterday, it's actually because the escalators at Moorgate were broken. Far from clarifying matters, this only throws up more questions. Which escalators? The station's been open in the morning rush hour in the past when escalators were being repaired, and people were directed to the stairs instead without any issues that I could see. If this escalator thing is a disaster, why was the tube still running through the station and stopping to pick up and drop off. And most of all, why would FCC invent flooding yesterday? The station is operated by London Underground, so admitting the escalator issue wouldn't admit any liability for the problem on their part. Have they now got to the point where they just lie and talk rubbish by default?
