100 Journeys: No 11 (Moquette-Gate!)

Last week saw Londonist’s Geoff Marshall explain all 4 London landmarks in the Central/Northern and Jubilee Line moquette seat covers. (And Even though I always wrongly thought the 4th landmark was Canary Wharf, it was a great video).

Then, in what can only be described as Moquette-Gate”, Timeout London, The Evening Standard and ITV London all shamelessly stole the story, with only Timeout later adding in a credit to the original.

Geoff then took to twitter to ask his follows to come up with plausible yet completely false tube facts that would bait the aforementioned media piggy-backers. Some of the replies are truly inspired. You can read the full range of responses by following the link to the tweet above, but Geoff went on to summarise the best ‘facts’ on The Londonist, my personal favourite being from one Thomas Preece

…because sometimes, you know, even I question it’s existence…

Who knew a seat could cause so much controversy!
