What's your take on TfL's "See it, say it, sorted" campaign?

    Apart from it being a weird thing to say (how the hell are tourists supposed to understand it?), I just hear, "See it, say it, snort it," which is an entirely different message.

    The message beforehand states 'If you see something that doesn't look right, please report it.' That gives me a strong urge to report seeing someone wearing socks with sandals.

    We have the same phrase on trains up north. I assumed it was about anti social behaviour (yeah, like the guard is ever going to come and deal with that, no chance) but now I learn it's terrorism. So its grass a Muslim with a backpack then? I'm not sure most terrorist activity is easily seen in the way the phrase suggests.

    TfL are good at coming up with their own inane ideas, like "This bus is about to move". No need to shove the BTP's idiocy onto them as well. :)

    I kept thinking it was "See it, Say it, Sort it!".

    Which I thought betrayed perhaps too much faith in the general public's bomb-disposal skills.

    I suggested at a high level Tfl meeting (just after the London Bridge attack) that the new slogan should be "steam in, sorted" but alas this was not adopted.
