Christmas on the Tube

Snogging Tiger, Hidden Dragon

You know that it's close to Xmas when you see women being snogged by a stuffed tiger, under watchful eye of a bear:

And vacuum cleaners dressed as Santa taking up busking

More signs of Xmas pictures on the way. If you've spotted anything particularly festive on the Tube please pass it my way.

Vandals or Passenger Action?

When does vandalism become passenger action? This morning the District Line was suspended between Richmond & Turnham Green due to people breaking up the copper lines at Gunnersbury. On the radio they were described as vandals. By the time I got to Waterloo it was described as "passenger action", but on reaching Leicester Square it was good old "vandalism" again. I always think of passenger action as some sort of commuting protest - with placards, loudspeakers and petitions. Not a bunch of hoodies ripping up the lines. And it the second time in two weeks. Pesky passengers!
