Sahhf of the river, down Bermondsey way

There was a trailer on the TV about some docusoap featuring someone jumping under a train on the Northern Line (a 'oneunder' in the jargon). It is always the Northern Line...

I cannot help wondering if the reason the new bit of the Jubilee line via Waterloo, Southwark, Canary Wharf etc to Stratford has doors on the platform which line up with the train doors and only open when a train is in the station, is that it was felt that the lives of people who live and/or work in this area (particularly people working at Canary Wharf) are just so much worse than those who live and/or work on the Northern Line, that if they didn't go to this extreme the incidence of 'track pizza' would be just too horrible to contemplate.

(thus speaks a North London bigot :-) )
