Boris threatens to automate the tube trains!

Finally, something which shows he is a Tory!

I was beginning to wonder, to be honest. He fought against the housing benefit cuts, he wants amnesties for illegal immigrants, and he is always clamouring for more State funding for this pet project or that pet project.

I think automated trains would be a fantastic idea but sadly he is just rattling the sabre. He is just sending a message to the RMT to watch it. Still, it feels good to hear it.

Excellent idea! The Metro in HK is unmanned and runs like a dream.

LFN. DLR are unmanned trains are safe and have run safely for years. I think though we should still keep station gaurds on the underground.

If the tube drivers keep on striking, we might in the near future have unmanned trains!

We should automate the tube. Not particularly as an anti-union move, but just because it is obviously a good idea.
