    Update to a message I posted on the London main page and the transportation page earlier regarding a Tube strike on Boxing Day. In the last half hour Arsenal F.C. have announced that their Premiership football match against West Ham United F.C. on 26th December is postponed because of the strike. No alternative date has yet been arranged. The QPR v. West Brom and Fulham v. Southampton games go ahead as planned.
