Getting on the tube every day is enough of a drag without all those stupid adverts trying to convince you that your 'perfect match' is somewhere in the same sweaty tube carriage as you, or that buying some weird vitamins will essentially make you immortal. Perhaps the worst of all these adverts is Match.com's recent #LoveYourImperfections campaign, which shows various people with 'imperfections' like not knowing how to pronounce 'Marylebone' and being unable to see the word 'Cockfosters' without laughing.

In other news, TfL has spent £600,000 on the non-existent night tube.
