Battle of the Bulge

The "new" East London line, now extended, is about to be opened with much pride and ceremony.

Has anyone noticed an unsightly bulge that has appeared on the latest version of the tube map? It occurs to the east of the central zone [zone 1] and incorporates Shoreditch station within the zone, thus ensuring that hapless passengers using this new extension will pay dearly for their journeys.

So, not content with short-changing the staff of the new line with sub-standard wages and conditions, TfL is adopting the same tactics with its "valued customers". World class service indeed!
