Another top poster

Having a good run of seeing tube related posters this week. The following had me and loads of people reading it on the platform of Piccadilly Circus on the Bakerloo Line heading north. It's from
Sue Townsend's Number Ten and describes a fictional incident of the Prime Minister being on the tube.

Sorry about the quality of the picture but the most relevant bits are the opening and closing lines:

"Jack and the Prime Minister were in darkness standing on a stationary Northern Line train. The Prime Minister hated the dark.......

"Now he was hanging on a handle that was suspended from the ceiling of the train, sweat running between the push me up and squeeze me together cups of his wife's brassiere. A madman began to shout about Sir Cliff Richard - accusing him of forcing Hank Marvin to become a Jehovah's Witness"

London Underground poster for Sue Townsend's Number Ten

As the poster implored us to "read more" I'm certainly tempted to.

For more of the real PM on the tube see goingunderground.net's report.
