Busker alert

Following up on my previous writings on buskers on the underground, I witnessed something new on the Piccadilly line last weekend. I was coming back from the V&A museum on Sunday on a relatively packed tube which was travelling between Hammersmith and Acton Town. An automatic announcement came on.

“There are beggars and buskers operating on this train. Please do not encourage their presence by supporting them.”

“Please keep your personal belongings with you at all times.”

The announcements got my fellow passengers looking around somewhat nervously. For the record, I did not witness any unlicensed begging or busking during the remainder of my journey.
