Friday morning, and the trains into London are significantly less crowded than in the rest of the week. We are not exactly stretched out with feet up on the opposite seat but people who stand are doing so from choice. Is this down to people taking holidays, or just skiving off for a long weekend? Or is it the harbinger of the economic downturn? One might have thought that people would be working as hard as they could in the current climate, not taking time off. Unless they are forced to work a 4 day week.
In short, there is no obvious conclusion to the conundrum so there let it remain.
