If there is one thing above all others that makes me growl at Mother London on my return visits, it is the London Bus Ticket Machine.

Tom Coates has done a great job in highlighting all of it’s deficiencies at his Flickr stream.

Ken Livingstone should be ashamed of this, London’s design community should lobby hard to fix it; and Londoners in general should rise up against it’s crappitude.
