Boris’s Boring Announcements

Firstly I would like to thank all my followers, thanks for your comments, likes and follows.

Here is the second piece I’ve written for I’m enjoying it, and I shall update you all as and when anything is published. I also have a few other article ideas that will be up on the blog very soon.

So here is a snippet of my opinionated piece and as ever the link so you can carry on reading…

The more I hear Boris’s boring voice on the tannoy announcement at train stations, the more I dread the London 2012 Olympic Games.

I recently attended a training session for work in Islington. This meant getting a mainline train using South Eastern and then using the London underground to Angel.

Before I left my house, my mum informed me that there would be crowd testing happening at all the mainline train stations which included London Bridge a station I would need to go through on the way there and back. My first thoughts were GREAT.

I agree and understand that they have to test these new procedures but this close to the games, I thought they would have already done these tests.

How can I comment on the new procedures?

Well they are quite frankly stupid, long-winded and an extra headache. Everyone I spoke to who used the trains on this day said that the new entrances, exits and procedures were a huge inconvenience to their journeys.

I hope you continue reading on this link

I’d love to know your thoughts?

    I just think London is full of people who like to moan! So what it takes a little longer for you to get to work, this is an amazing event happening here that will probably never happen again in your home town in your life time. People need to suck it up and get on with it! People are un-happy if they can’t get on a tube in the morning, yet chances are there will be another along a min later. No wonder they say the most un-happy people live in London. It’s full of wingers. Do you think back in the day before busses and trains were invented people moaned? They just got on with it. People should be grateful for what they got.

      Hi Jason, Thanks for the comment, I appreciate your honesty. I’m not saying that games won’t be outstanding, I’m merely commenting on some of the stupid procedures that won’t make things easier for Londoners and tourists alike.

      Thanks again for your comment.

        It’s called crowed control. Things would be a hell of a lot worse if everyone was told to get on with it! It just wouldn’t be safe to have so many people in one place at one time, what if there were a fire? Thing is people don’t see the positive in things, always the negative. Ask the same question when a major incident has happened if that inconveinace was worth it.

        Only time will tell. London Bridge is even more chaotic than usual. Whereas the improvements to Waterloo East that I only saw after writing this article are outstanding and so much better.
