      All the reasons to only go to the office one day a week
      I surrender all control
      To the desire that consumes me whole
      Leads me by the hand to infinity
      Lies in wait at the heart of me - the Albion of course !

      Got turfed off at Three Bridges, now stuck between Balcombe and H Heath. My lad is on an earlier train and has been near/at H Heath for over half an hour.

      Mid 90s were still the worst IMO. Awful, unsafe (slam door), crowded, antique trains running on terrible infrastructure, almost daily reduction in train carriage numbers from what was planned and almost never any announcements when anything went wrong (which was often) and the most rude, unhelpful disinterested station staff who would all go and hide at the first sign of trouble. At least now I can check the app and know it’s shit before I turn up most of the time.

      Currently stuck on train that is heading to Littlehampton. Left Haywards Heath 25 mins late 15 mins ago, not even reached Wivelsfield. Signal problem apparently. Stuck here looking into someones back garden. The joy.
      Update: just leaving Hassocks. Only have to get to Hove, could be another 30 mins! Working from home looking very likely tomorrow.

      A railway infrastructure run into the ground by the Tory’s so they could flog it for a song.Sadly now commuters hard earned cash is propping up foreign rail companies .

      Amazing moment of common sense from southern - they had a train waiting at Littlehampton and announced ‘we’ll leave as soon as everyone is on board’ - now on our way back to Hove.
