Crossrail 2 Falls Victim To £1.8bn TfL Bailout

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on the Construction Enquirer.

It appears that one of the conditions of the bailout of Transport for London, is that ongoing consultancy on Crossrail 2, will be scrapped.

As someone, who lives in an area, that will benefit enormously from Crossrail 2, I still feel that this is a good idea, as for the last few years, the transport system in East London has coped well and other improvements already in the pipeline, will keep things going until the economy recovers from the covids and a rathional decision can be made about Crossrail 2.

Police Shut Down Illegal Halloween Parties And A Christening

The title of this post is the same as that of this article on the Evening Standard.

This is the opening paragraph.

Police were called to break up 11 illegal lockdown parties in the capital over the Halloween weekend – including a 1,000 people rave in East London.

The police were also called to a Christening, where a £10,000 fixed-penalty notice was handed out.

When will people learn that Careless Meeting Costs Lives.

Perhaps we should avoid the two R-words; rave and religion to keep the all important R-number down.
