I Don't Think, Therefore I Strike

The latest dispatch from a country that prides itself on its Cartesian thinking:

Today the RATP was on strike, running one train in 3 (or 4, depending on who you believe) on the RER lines A and B. The reason for cutting the service? Because on a normal schedule, the trains are too full.


  1. Ahh typical! I'm in Paris on Wednesday for the day and hope there are no problems because I'm submitting my UK visa application. I've given myself loads of time, but you never know with SNCF, plus the RATP what could happen!

  2. Seems to be over for the moment, Kiwi. This was definitely a "just to show you we can" kind of strike!
