View Full Version : So London is a ghost town, shops are complaining that they are empty

tubes, trains and stations into London are reportedly 30% less busy

Plus the Euros passed off without any incident without any thing significant happening, despite us hearing that people would be coming home in coffins

Is it time that we all just realised that we are completely clueless about everything and we shouldn't waste our energy moaning so much?

And if we aren't going to moan, what are we going to talk about? http://www.awimb.com/images/smiley_icons/smile.gif

seeing as the case for them getting one was based on them having to drive more people around?

Suspect it'll get busier next week once the athletics starts

arriving for a major sporting event" hype incredibly funny. It's not like London isn't full of tourists every summer and we have major sporting events going on all the time, with tens of thousands of people being transported about the capital.

If anything, we're more geared up for this than most host cities.

I've always loved footie in London because of the intimacy, sure, you don't want to drive to a football game and there's a cue for the tube afterwards, but blimey, the way 60,000 people are funnelled out of the emirates after the game is excellent. No city is better prepared for handling masses than London.

Olympics out in the sticks just because it's practical is silly, imo.

to do when they're not watching the games.

The school holidays also mean that a lot of people who usually commute into London won't be for the next few weeks.
