The Digester

It still takes far too long to make short crosstown journeys in London, despite the congestion charge (which I applaud). For example, the couple of kilometres or so from my office on Holborn Viaduct to Liverpool St station can be done by taxi (20 mins; £10); tube (20 mins; £2.10) or on foot (20 mins; shoe leather).

The only quick way to get around town is by bicycle or motorbike.


The trouble with bikes and in-line roller skates and so on is that their silence makes them dangerous. So I think that everyone should wear Noddy-hats and get around on pogo-sticks.
