Last month, London Underground had some very important visitors, as FIFA officials travelled around the Jubilee line inspecting the facilities as they assessed London’s bid for the 2018 World Cup.
Funnily enough, though, normal levels of station staffing were not adequate for our visitors, as SRT were deployed on stations along the line in addition to regular staff. Evidently, management are not too keen to show the world just how low station staffing levels have fallen, and would prefer the bid assessors to think that we have rather more staff than we actually do!
Don’t they know that bringing on extra players is against the rules?!
