Boris Johnson's tube booze ban in action

London-based blogger Liz on the New Year revelers.
It's still working like a dream then Boris.

I noticed this too; tube debauchery in full swing.

It's called self-policing. Presumably everyone drinking on the tube paid themselves a big fine before imposing a custodial sentence on themselves in their bedrooms.

Liz said...

The fine would be the increased cost of travelling on TfL - definitely a great move on Boris' part!
Thanks for the link.

Self-imposed custodial sentence, mm? I think I may use that excuse to stay in bed next time...

AdamB said...

No problem Liz.

Unfortunately our fines begin today I'm afraid. Happy New Year!

Douglas, I, a fellow leftie and a bottle of gin were all party to some illegality together on the 31st.

(James from http://scriboergosum.com and no, the comments don't seem to be working yet.)

James, has your name changed?

Doug said...

Not as such, he's just decided to start using his real surname instead of a quasi-pseudonym. And it wasn't illegality, James, it was a clear act of civil disobedience...

Well it's nice to know that we have at least one reader to notice. Yes, my surname's always been a bit of a grey area. I'll make my mind up again shortly, I'm sure.

Douglas: it was decidedly both.
