Tube Map Update
I was clearly not the only person to be horrified at Transport for London's decision to remove the Thames from their new tube map. Boris Johnson, our doughty Mayor, returned from a trip to New York to find this fait accompli and immediately ordered that the river should be restored to the map, though this will probably not happen until December. His decision, though obviously reflecting his own thoughts, followed a storm of protest from all Londoners and not a few foreigners. Another example of a change simply not thought-through.
