Oldskool writers bench cancelled.
Sadly this event has now been cancelled, so we've been told... Apparently this was supposed to be through word of mouth, no flyers, nobody under the age of 30 AND wasn't involved with the people that originally arranged the event....
Maybe the organizers should inform the people they are inviting of their rules in the future, that way you won't have flyers appearing, info being emailed, and the event getting mentioned on various websites...

Just 1 month ago, Network Rail announced a £35 BILLION investment into the railway. Why? Probably because the railway is a complete shambles, especially compared to other places in the world.

The number of passengers has increased by 60% in 15 years, a shocking amount and whats even more shockng is that there are only 5% more trains on the lines.
LU isn't any better either, all the problems, strikes and all the rest of it.
And a few weeks ago, we see the London Underground winning the 'metro of the year' award.

And I'd just like to say well done to them people in Kent, with their rage at Costa. Nice to see some people value where they live and not let big businesses trample all over them and be involved with every single thing in their life!
And finally, that cab driver who drove onto the fucking railway, what a cock! Do you think people jump red lights and drive into the back of other cars on the road just cos the sat nav says go straight? Fucking Champion...

"Stuffy, overcrowded, irritable, nauseating, putrid. These were just a few of the words that I had used to describe London’s Underground System, as I was making that most tedious journey on the Piccadilly Line, from South Kensington to Russell Square. And it’s not just me that feels this way. I know for a fact, that thousands of other commuters are bored to death by the state of the appalling transportation service that is… the Tube."
