I notice Euston now has a pre-recorded PA encouraging people to wear masks "out of respect for others". What's doubly irritating is it's been recorded using the male version of the two utterly cringeworthy voices which have been heard on NR stations since this all kicked off.
Horrendous. I don’t use Euston much, thankfully. There don’t seem to be too many recorded announcements at Pancras/Kings +. Or maybe there are but I subconsciously drown them out!
Meanwhile, TfL had the mask compliance enforcement officers at Edgware today, second time I've seen them there recently, though they didn't seem to be doing much. Perhaps they sensed it was a losing battle, since 50-75% of people weren't wearing masks, and were simply strolling past.
I’m not sure what they can really do. Clearly there’s no longer any basis to issue penalties or report people for prosecution. I suppose they could fall back on simply telling people to leave, but that’s hardly practical when 50% of passengers are maskless.
Staring on in impotent rage is about the extent of it I suspect…
I really object to all this passive-aggressive stuff.
Likewise. Covid really has brought the worst out of so many people.
