Mellow travellers

That Ealing feeling.

Full marks to the ladies who came out of a Covent Garden club, spotted a binman practising his trade, hopped into his cab, and, when he returned, said, “Can you take us home?” They were going to Ealing, and he was Chiswick-bound, so a deal was struck, though what with everything it took three hours to reach their destination. Halfway along they passed a 24*7 and icecreams were consumed, some of which stayed down.

I thought GPS vehicle tracking and Stalinist managerialism had terminated this basic human right.
