Most mornings I catch the 8.02 from Tonbridge Station. Six months ago I had to get the 7.52 and six months before that it was the 7.42. The reason? Because if I had arrived at the station any later than that the car park would have been full. Nowadays, the car park rarely fills until mid morning. Today at 8am there were more than 80 free spaces.
This surely has to be a sign of economic slowdown. Fewer and fewer people are making the daily commute into London and I can think of no other reason than that.
What signs are you seeing of an economic slowdown?
