Protest Page in The Evening Standard

It's a new page in every Friday's Evening Standard to give people the opportunity to moan (or praise) travelling in London.

My favourite is the following letter:

"I have difficulty understanding the new London Underground references to "normal" and "good" service. You may be interested in the explanation that a friend of mine received in response to a letter to the group manager: "In response to your question on the difference between 'normal' and 'good' service it was agreed by the company that 'normal' service would refer to when all trains are running and there are no disruptions on a particular line, and that 'good' service would refer to when there are some cancellations, but generally a good service available". All therefore clear."
John Edwards, Worcester Park, Surrey

About as clear as mud!
