Tube announcer sacked for telling truth (via BBC Online):

“The woman who became the Voice of the Tube has been sacked after allegedly criticising London Underground (LU). Voiceover artist Emma Clarke, 36, is the woman millions of Tube travellers hear warning them to ‘mind the gap’. Ms Clarke also made a series of spoof announcements on a website promoting her voiceover work. An LU spokesman said: ‘It’s not because of the spoof announcements. It’s because she has criticised the Underground system.’”

The spoof announcements are here. An interview with Emma is over at b3ta.

She’d have been much better off making real announcements about the collapse of Metronet and concerns over rail safety. Oh, and the strikes.
