Brexit talks: Bercow must feel the heat over Clarke curry - EXPRESS COMMENT | Express Comment | Comment | Express.co.uk
... WE ARE sure that there is not a special place in Hell for Brexiteers, as European Council President Donald Tusk suggested last week, but the curries in Kennington are almost certainly hotter. ...
... And it may well be that John Bercow was just having a quiet meal and a beer with an old friend when he met up with veteran Tory MP Ken Clarke last week in the Kennington Tandoori. The trouble for the Speaker, though, is that the reports of his conversation on Brexit play in to a narrative that he has taken a side on quitting Europe, which goes against the important traditions of his role. After all, this is the man who told students he voted Remain, has anti-Brexit stickers on the family car and, crucially, has intervened twice in Parliament to break precedent to help out Remainers in their efforts to stop Brexit.  ...

The strange London Underground phenomenon where you could visit the same station on the Northern Line twice - MyLondon

The strange London Underground phenomenon where you could visit the same station on the Northern Line twice - MyLondon
... Well, with one particular station, anyway. The anomaly is called the Kennington Loop. ...
... What is the Kennington Loop?
The Kennington Loop is a bizarre quirk where trains on the Northern Line reverse.
Usually when trains terminate they are sent to a depot - so the driver can get into the rear cab and go back northbound - but when southbound services terminate at Kennington, the train does a huge underground circle by the Oval cricket ground.
This means the train doubles back on itself and arrives in a northbound direction at Kennington again. So you can visit the station twice, technically in one journey. ...
... I suppose that's probably only helpful if you actually need to get off at Kennington, but it's still a cool quirk. ...
... It's the question on everyone's lips (ok, well, on your lips if you're a train nerd)... Will the Kennington Loop still exist after the Northern Line extension? ...
... Transport for London says as fewer trains will be terminating at Kennington when the extension opens (because trains will continue to the two new stations) the loop is likely to be used less. ...
