Not to mention those who are unwell or medical emergencies. When we have finished paying for these countless redundancies due to the depressing rate of useless automation, I look forward to the havoc when the computer systems fail. As they always do. Nobody has also mentioned the point of lost property which may sound minor, but human nature will see people either making off with or chucking things they find rather than handing them in to the office, especially when combined with 24 hour drinking and 24 hour tubes (which are another awful idea). These ‘cars’ are going to stink even more. Boris Johnson previously signed a petition against such changes but is now shamefully spearheading their implementation.
