So is it fair to say that people do not actually know what the problem is?

From the above it seems a problem of rail clip design, historic lack of maintenance, and perhaps choice of poor construction engineers on the Circle Line.

p.s. I can't deal with Stomp, it is like wading through an ocean of repetitive adolescent spew desperately hoping to come upon some, any, a, pearl of wisdom.

It's like going through YouTube comments.

what's even more discouraging are the media outfits like yahoo who make sure every incident that has a foreigner in it would get more mileage by highlighting the fact that the news is again about a foreigner but if its a local, you notice they omit the information that its a local who is in the news. :roll:

Things break down sometimes, when it's something big then it causes more problems! People have to deal with it better here, what's the point in getting up in arms about it?

Maybe it's a 'useful channel' for their pent up aggression that they are unable to express in everyday life?

Maybe they should grow a set and deal with the actual issues.

Eh, I believe the proper term is "somebody has to fall on their sword, first!"

Why, thank you. Would you like some scones or finger sandwiches perhaps?

'Oh don't mind if I do thank you. By the way that young man seemed to have an unusually large sword.'
