Be good to get some critical mass going on in London Bridge.



Critical mass? Weren't they the insignificant bunch of clowns that tried,(unsuccessfully), to wind me and other drivers up by riding slowly around the roundabout on the south side of Waterloo Bridge, usually on Friday evenings?
I remember punters in the back of my taxi getting apoplectic with rage as they realised that they might miss their train because of those cretins, while safe in the knowledge that it wasn't my fault, I lazily watched the meter keep ticking up.
I've handed in my badge now, and no longer have to suffer their antics, while feigning empathy with the punters and suggesting that they write to Boris about it.

Thew critical mass I was refering to Tom was the number of people working in the area not a group of cyclists....bit the wrong end of the stick there lol

I knew that urbanite, just couldn't resist juggling your post and having a crack at the old enemy.

Rather unfair, imho. All I've seen is someone trying to tell people to stop squabbling.

...if you press it, they will come.

Was meant more rather tongue in cheek than for real...hence the lol at the end Ivanhoe. It was definitely not meant to be a crticism in any way and yes that thread was getting very childish as some do occasionally on here and James does a very good job at moderating the site.

Some Murdoch news that's actually true :)

this will have a huge impact on the top end of Borough High Street in particular. i am sure businesses providing for the working day crowd will be rubbing there hands in glee. Wapping's loss is SE1's gain

Well as an aside - I owe Murdoch a thing or two because it is what brought me to the Borough in the first place.

I didn't want to commute from West London to Fortress Wapping. I have to say I would have far preferred to the commute to London Bridge ... good thing I am now an x Murdoch Minion.
