10/13

I've only been to London once but I think the travel questions are more idealistic than a reflection of what actually happens.

I went for push your way on, as it's what most people do anyway, I thought politeness, happiness and kindness had evaporated from our public transport system.

It's finishing school for you. You know the basics but there's room for improvement. But you must venture outside the M25 to improve your street cred.

not bad, not bad. :]


and i can't believe i answered incorrect to the first question "on which side of an escalator do you stand". (i never made mistakes with that when i was in the UK)

You beat me; i only got 10 and i've been to London once when i was 13 for a couple of days...

I said that you should stand on the left hand side of the escalator (which is the practice in perth, i assumed elsewhere too :\ ), I said that the Toad dish was not a traditional dish (apparantly the stout isnt :\), and i said that someone who was going to spend a penny was going to spend (alot) of pounds, not go to the loo.

Seriously, with regards to the last one, does anyone actually say that who is not a nutter?

Define "many people". Hundreds of thousands of people use the train to go to work outside of London. Just because you're lucky enough to have a car.

I'm sure I've seen ticket barriers elsewhere, but you may have a point.

Really?
I'd be interested to see those statistics.

I'm not doubting people actually do use the train but from the (albeit anecdotal) evidence I've seen, trains are used in a much much lower proportion than buses and cars. Especially by students (which is what the article is about), I can't think of any university outside London where people would commute to it by train.

Thinking of the major cities here - Manchester, Newcastle, Leeds, Sheffield, Birmingham, Bristol, Nottingham etc etc don't have a train network as such.
Trams and metro's yes, but not trains. Liverpool is the only city I can think of with a "train" link.

Brighton does, but that's practically London these days anyway

Re: Studing in the UK, do`s and don`ts.

This "anti London" sentimentality is very similar to the "Scotland vs England" argument.

People in England don't mind the Scottish, in fact a lot of us regard them as our slightly less intelligent sibling. If there's a competitive event on (for example, an international game of football), then we'll happily support Scotland as they're "kin" to us. However, the Scottish harbour a deep resentment to the English for some reason (I can only think jealousy!) and - as most UKers know - actively support whichever team is playing AGAINST England. It's really rather sad.

The "London vs other major cities" is the same. Londoners don't mind other cities or the people that live there. They just know that they're a little bit inferior! The other city-goers seem to harbour (as with the Scottish/English situation) a deep resentment to Londoners and everything our great nation's capital stands for.

I was the same when I lived in Exeter - I thought of London as a dirty, bustling, crimeridden hellhole. Now I love the place and can't wait to move back.

A much lower proportion, yes, but that doesn't stop all the trains between Durham and Newcastle (say) being impossibly backed between about 7:30 and 9:00, and indeed of a night; trains are faster and smoother between Durham and Newcastle, and pretty much all the Durham students who go to the Newcastle clubs and whatnot go by train, at least in my experience. Any examination of the frequency of this event must take into consideration that the Durham clubs are by far the worst I've ever experienced, and as I hate all clubs that's saying something.

Again, Newcastle springs to mind. It's more of a train system than the underground, despite...

The Tyne and Wear Metro may be much more linear than the London one, but that's largely because London is much larger; that doesn't mean it shouldn't count as a "train" if the Underground does.

"The Metro is usually described as Britain's first modern light rail system. However, it can be considered a hybrid system, displaying elements of light rail, heavy underground metro, and longer-distance, higher speed suburban and interurban railway systems." says wikipedia on the topic.

Having been to London on many occasions, I can safely say that my opinion of it as a dirty, bustling, crimeridden hellhole which is also far too large is fairly well founded. But then I do think that about Newcastle, Bristol, Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham and the rest as well.

Re: Studing in the UK, do`s and don`ts.

I'd never seen a ticket barrier before visiting Sydney. I didn't know what they were or how to get tickets for them (vending machines!).

It took me ages to work out how to get out of the central metro

Most stations in the UK have ticket barriers these days including the small ones, they've been phasing them in everywhere since privatization. Quite a few people I know commute to Cardiff to work via train.

Re: Studing in the UK, do`s and don`ts.

I figured that because it was the Grauniad it was satirical so did the first few tube-related ones as 'being as obnoxious as possible'. That's what you ****s down there do, isn't it?

Re: Studing in the UK, do`s and don`ts.

They missed out an important question

Your in a hurry to get on to the next tube train with several police offers chasing you. Do you:

a) Stop and wait for them to catch up
b) Jump over the ticket barrier and hurtle down the esculators on to the train
c) Pop into the WH Smith in the train station and buy some Lucozade
d) Start shouting out Brazilian



And if you answered B, congratulations - in the eyes of the Law your now a terrorist
