Tonight is the last night you can drink alcohol on the London Underground (or indeed buses). The ban comes into force tomorrow compliments of new mayor Boris 'Bozzer' Johnson. The pic is Bozzer and some pals planning the ban.
There is resistance. Tonight there will be
drinks parties staged on the London Underground. The plan is some serious flash mobbing. The group "One final tube booze party" claims 3,500 members, enough to take over three trains. Inevitably there will be an extra police presence despite the partygoers' organisers requesting consideration for fellow passengers. The rail unions, who were not consulted as regards the ban, are not happy bunnies, fearing problems for staff attempting to enforce it. The present sanction to to ask anyone with an open bottle or can to leave (!). New criminal offences are on the way - inevitably enough.
Good for the partygoers. I hope they enjoy :D
