    Comment of the week:

    One of the many comments on the unveiling of the new bus for London:

    Needs a back window, and needs a smiley face on the front. And will the inside look like an overlit swimming pool with nasty plastic seats? Whatever, I'll forgive it as long as it's quieter than the current leviathans that shake my flat to its foundations every 3-4 minutes.

    Poor SebBrennan!
