Down the Tube

Sir: Does the writer of your leading article on the London Underground (22 June) actually use it? No, it is not dirty, it is reasonably clean; and it is not unsafe - it is more dangerous above ground. It is, however, unreliable.

The management may well have got it wrong over the closure of the Circle Line, but as the system gets a fraction of the subsidy of the Paris Metro they deserve every credit for keeping trains actually running. They are miracle-workers. The problem is not with management, but with lack of money.
