Last week, I wasn't well for a couple of days, I was laid up in bed with some sort of flu. When I was feeling a bit better -- not sick, but still very tired -- I decided to keep my meetings and set off into London. How reassuring it was to find myself on the 7.40 cattle-truck to Waterloo and hear this announcement from the guard: "We apologise for the overcrowding on this service, which is due to an excess number of passengers." As the staid looking chap in a suit and tie opposite me remarked, "no shit".
