Public transport - publicly-owned and -accountable, democratically run by workers and passengers, affordable, accessible, safe, efficient, environmentally-friendly ... cor, that'd be good, wouldn't it?!
Yelling at Tube staff
Because your train is delayed
Is really not cool
Bank to Waterloo
They're swimming against the tide
I know how they feel
Waterloo to Bank
Head-to-head with the mainstream
It is quite draining

Meeting in Brussels, the European Transport Workers' Federation Women's Committee will share information and reports from women trade unionists across Europe's countries and transport sectors, and agree on a publicity campaign to tackle violence against women transport workers - it's not part of the job!
Check back after the event for Janine's report.
Conway Hall, London
Janine will be giving a presentation about London Underground during the day, and performing poetry in the evening.
The organisers say:
On 17 January, 2015, join us for an exciting and unconventional new event organised by people with autism.
I will be "giving evidence" about the disastrous Public-Private Partnership on London Underground at this conference, and selling copies of my book Plundering London Underground: private capital and public service 1997-2010
