This became an irretrievably stupid idea from the moment the newspapers started to cash in on it.

(Both London freesheets had it on their front page yesterday, and it’s in several nationals today.)

My advice to you if you’re planning on a day or night out in London today is to avoid the underground system. You certainly shouldn’t put yourself in a position where you need to rely on it.


UPDATE – Alternatively, you could throw caution to the wind and have a drinking competition.

    "Tube drinks party sparks mayhem"…Oops. Decision to ban thoroughly vindicated.

  2. D-Notice says

    MikkimooseThe ban isn't vindicated. All it shows is that some people can't control themselves. That's no reason to criminalise the rest of us who can.

  3. mikkimoose says

    well no, but as far as the media/public is concerne itis.

  4. Sim-O says

    A beautiful own goal, I think, in several ways.

  5. Manic says

    MSM cashes in.Event grows out of control.MSM cashes in.

  6. Letters From A Tory says

    So glad I wasn't anywhere near London on Saturday. Shame that so many idiots had to assault London Underground staff and the police when most people were just there to enjoy themselves.
