Prisoner of London

This is the single worst day of the year to not have a car and be in London, one of the biggest cities in the world. Here's what TFL says when I ask them about transportation options:
CHRISTMAS DAY: Please note that there are no London Buses, London Underground, National Rail, DLR and Tramlink services on Christmas Day. Journey Planner may return the first available journey on Boxing Day or last available journey on Christmas Eve in such cases.

I liked it much better in New York when the transport services were fully up and running on Christmas day - what with the overtime pay and the multiplicity of religions, it's not like there was a shortage of people to do the work. Maybe the US is just a more secular place than England - who knows! I wonder if Mexico City and Paris are also completely shut down today?

Okay, time to get my company clothes on and walk over to Streatham ...
