Quote:
The phrase "ladies and gentleman" is to be scrapped from announcements on the Tube in a bid to make them gender-neutral.

London Underground staff have been told to instead use greetings such as "good morning everyone" to ensure that all passengers feel "welcome".

It is rather presumptuous to assume everybody on the tube is a lady or gentleman.

What about trollops and ruffians? Peasants and servants? They let them buy tickets, too. Considering the class of people riding on public transportation these days, I bet their are very few ladies and gentlemen.

It’s all the “fault" of Wimbledon. They continue to continue it. Even to this day no less!:
