Public transport in London, that kept going throughout the blitz, pathetically came to a halt on Monday February 2nd because of a few inches of snow – or rather because of cost-cutting by private firms keener to make a fast buck than to provide a decent service to Londoners. The whole public transport system, rail and buses alike, is privately owned and run for profit. Staff did their best to keep the service going, but they weren’t helped by management cheese-paring. As far as they are concerned, workers are just a cost that needs cutting back.
