Not long before you get F1 NED on the tube ... just you wait

The following story is reported on the BBC website. Our controlling masters and those in 'job justification' positions have now come up with this idea.

As the motorists in London are being F1NED off the roads and driven onto public transport TfL are looking at another revenue stream

This time it is ...

Yellow boxes calm Tube platforms

The boxes are designed to prevent passengers blocking doors. Road-style markings have been introduced at London Underground stations to stop passengers crowding around train doors.
The yellow box junctions have been painted on platforms at 10 stations on the Jubilee Line.
Transport for London is running the trial to find out if platform markings can cut passenger congestion.

Once you create the villain (those who stand in the boxes) you have now created the justification to fine them. In time the yellow boxes will be CCTV monitored and 'Civil Enforcement Officers' will be radio linked to the operators and will fine the offenders.

You are now living in Orwellian Britain.

Oh how we laughed at Rowan Atkinson and Griff Rhys Jones in the Not the Nine o'Clock News sketch where the guy had been arrested buy an overzealous cop for 'walking on the cracks in the pavement' and 'wearing a loud shirt in a built up area.'

Let's hope the 'job justification' officials don't watch UK Gold.
