Move all the way down the carriage. People are going to squash on whether you're standing halfway down the aisle or at the very end. Take a dive through those sweaty bodies and use up all available space, before someone (read: me) passive-aggressively asks you to move down.

Here's an alarming statistic for you: more than one in five commuters say rising fares are leading to them considering looking for work outside of London according to a OnePoll survey of over 500 London workers.

Public transport is a common method of travel by many people across the globe, yet somehow some people still haven't mastered the art of getting it right. We have people that seem to think that they are the only one in a rush to get to a certain place, that they are the only one on the tube or that nobody around them has any transport requirements.

Blending into the background at Underground stations all around the capital, strange, abstract, monochromatic markings have appeared on walls. No fanfare, no explanation, just silent encroachment of this public space. Not sinister, just strange.

It is what we non-pregnant ladies dread. Being offered a seat on public transport. To us, it simply means you are either too old or too fat. And the fact you have actually shamed someone into giving up their seat - commuters will understand the significance of this during rush hour.
