It's no secret that we Brits like the occasional alcoholic drink every once in a while, so when London's recently elected Mayor - Boris Johnson - announced a ban on drinking alcohol on the Underground the result was a frenzy of last minute alcohol abuse leading to precisely the type of behaviour Mr Johnson claims his ban will eliminate. More on the story here and here.
In all my years of travelling on the tube I have never seen this many people drinking on the Tube. Not even during the city's Notting Hill Carnival, so my congratulations to Boris for instigating a night of stupidity with an ill-conceived and unnecessary law.
