Victoria Line Cement Man Identified
CONCRETE in the Victoria Line control room gave most of us a laugh. Tube sign writers raise a smile. But what says the RMT union? How did it happen? Who is to blame? This is what their spokesman said:
“We understand that a foot of concrete burst into the control room, having been poured into an escalator void.”
And then a spot of politicking. Apparently, because of London Mayor Boris Johnson’s plans a wally managed to fill a room with concrete.
“We await further information but what we do know is that LU technicians are on site now, working flat out to clear up the mess and get services back on line, proving once again that it’s directly-employed public sector staff who are needed to deal with this kind of emergency, making a nonsense of Boris Johnson’s Tube staff cuts plans.”
It is in no way a sing that idiots work on the Tube. Not a sign of that at all…
