Just look at the first three moments of this video...and look at the passenger levels...that is REASONABLE levels compared to what was usual in 2003-2005...imagine that PLUS a billion tourists extra for the olympics

Yikes! I'm sure I would feel claustrophobic packed into that crush of people.

Talk about a terrorist's dream, Dave, with so many people packed into those underground trains. I'm surprised y'all haven't had more terrorist attempts on the tube.

Where is the Olympic Village there, where all the athlete's will stay?
