this is a lil off topic.
I was telling someone that I really wanted to go to the olympics, but couldnt get tickets. his reply was "I wouldn't bother"
we D A Woolgar are on the First Capital Connect line, to Brighton. on an average day that line has 300k ppl on it.
Dont know if you have ever been on that line in rush hour but generally its standing room only and your nose is stuck in someoned un-lynxed armpit... through the period of the Olympics, they expect 800k ppl per day.
I can imagine ppl stranded in London as it is presumed they will be running a standard service.
