Round-up of links :

  • BBC
  • Evening Standard
  • Railway Eye, where the Fact Compiler draws the technical and organisational parallels between Boris’s RM and the DfT’s ‘Frankenstein Train’ IEP and Thameslink procurements.  Both are characterised by people who don’t know what they’re doing thinking they know better than the industry experts honed by the pressures of commercial reality, plus an over-optimistic timetable.  Ominously for Boris, everyone expects the IEP and Thameslink procurements will be a collosal cockup for precisely these reasons.  Dunning-Kruger in full flow.
  • GLA
  • Londonist
  • Diamond Geezer talks more sense than anyone, as usual.  Check out the awesome Lego creation.
