public transport

The new Concourse at Kings Cross looks a lot better in a photograph than it does in person - presumably because this omits large numbers of cross commuters.  This is a city with a public transport system that apparently is going to work just fine in 15 days time when the Olympics start?  It took me 2 1/4 hours to get back from the British Library to Wimbledon - person under the train on the Jubilee line; heavy rain causing general havoc; road problems meaning that there was a 45 minute wait between 93 buses - something that turned into the first time I've ever heard a driver complaining at the passengers, on the intercom, for complaining at him, since (he pointed out) he was well over the end of his shift and wished he was home, too.  And then he said he hoped that we all liked each others' smell, since we were so closely packed together ... ah, London.
