The problem with other passengers

February 2014
Evening Standard;2/18/2014, p49
I WAS disgusted to hear about a pregnant woman forced to sit on the floor of a crowded train. However she targets the wrong people by attacking the train company for not allowing her dispensation to sit in first class. The self-centred numpties on that train should have been slightly more thoughtful and relentlessly badgered until one of them got up. Common decency should come well before first-class tickets being given out.
