Second train derailment in as many days on the London Underground. Great. On a purely selfish note I hope it doesn't take them as long to sort this out as the Central Line, I don't want to have to get the bus into town. But this is the third accident to happen on the Tube since private companies took over track maintenance, they had contracts that last thirty years and they couldn't even last one year before things go wrong. The Government still want to bring in 'public'-private partnerships to run the Underground. Surely this is an indication that such a mad scheme won't work.
