The Strike

The train driver apologies for the delay but you feel people’s anger at the impending strike by the RMT Union. In one hour, the whole London Underground network will be paralysed.

The train is jam packed. Nothing unusual but I’m the lucky one this time, at least I’m on a train. I even have the luxury of getting off a stop early at Bank Station. I just wanted to escape the sweat. I get off and find that everything is getting shut down. People are desperate to get home but the gates are shut. The air is hot with distress and anger.

The misery is not being able to get home. I’m grateful for that today.
