Tony, perhaps some of the problem with STA drivers is the road surface on which they have to drive buses that rattle at every pot
hole or bump. Can't be pleasant. Unless they have markedly deteriorated since I was last home, London buses don't rattle and the
road surfaces are near perfect. Should be fairly good for drives, although they now have to contend with passengers who have no
idea what to do. At least "in the olden days" drivers sat up in front and only had to contend with other road users and that
confounded bell!

Regards
