As we know, management are constantly figuring out way of reducing SPADs. They have expert analysts on the case, and no stone is left unturned in their efforts to deploy the latest scientific strategies. So a prize for innovation, please, to Bakerloo line management, for coming up with this ingenious new plan: drivers should concentrate.
Oh yes. And isn't it a damn good job we have management around to tell us these things? Because it would never have crossed drivers' own minds to, erm, pay attention.
But it doesn't stop there. They are not just telling us to concentrate - they will be training us, giving us top tips such as eat healthily, sleep well, feel good, and stay focused. That's all drawn out into a 4-hour lecture. And if you can concentrate all the way through that, then you'll have no problem out on the road.
Oh, and it's pretty rich being told to 'eat healthily' and 'sleep well' by an employer that makes you do shiftwork and extreme turns.
Tubeworker has some better ideas, starting with: scrap the unrealistic Bakerloo timetable that has drivers constantly coming up against reds.
