    • With difficulty Mrs B. But only in the regard of constant barging of commuters hurtling down the narrow spiral to catch a train. It’s like a steel mineshaft to the centre of the earth. Cool!
      Transport for London have the means to install a lift shaft, but as with everything else that falls into private hands, profits come first and screw the public, let them run themselves sheep dizzy 1930s-style to catch the run-down cattle trucks they call trains.
      Nobody in art is complaining or protesting but us, it seems.
