While all the planet has been watching wonderful images from the Diamond Jubilee in London, yesterday I saw that the tube central line in London was disrupted in Stratford because of flooding. I just hope that something like that does not happen again during the Olympic Games.
Maybe instead of celebrating old glories of maritime domination with thousands of ship through the Thames this weekend it would be better to look into the present and not risk the Olympic Games with possible future disruptions in the Tube.
Maybe The Financial Times instead of being so eager for the collapse of the euro for the benefit of some few British speculators in the City it could worry more about how the money is spent in London.
I find it crazy that one day the river Thames is used as a vanity venue to show to the world how great the British Monarchy is and then the next day the most important station for the Olympic Games, Stratford, has to be closed for a flood. Together with other stations of the central line.
In less than 2 months the Olympic games will begin. How can this happen at Stratford tube station next to the Olympic venues?
