Dr. D recently hit the London Tube with a vengeance.
The King’s Cross area is currently being knocked down, cleaned up, rebuilt and gentrified in time for the 2012 Olympics. As a consequence of this, a large population of people who live and work on the street are being displaced. Many of these people have crack and heroin habits and prostitution isn’t exactly unknown. Rather than the authorities doing anything to improve their lives the ‘undesirable’ people are just being moved on to other boroughs that don’t have Olympic sites. Hence the official-looking signs which dr.d has put up on several of the Underground
lines. Theses echo the well-known announcements to ‘mind the gap’ between the train and the platform and to ‘stand clear of the doors’, and are designed to bring attention to the public policy of ignoring the drugs and prostitution problem and simply treating the victims as an eyesore.”
