Acrostics from the Tube

Can you identify a station from just a paving slab? Sadly, some people can

I'll finish off the Northern line on a shellfish theme. They're my favourite food! Sorry for doing whelks twice but I'd prepared quite a lot.

Whelks, often overlooked, deserve some investigation. Demand extra pepper and reject ketchup.

The octopus's tentacles taste extremely rich. I don't get exercised about natural delicacies - we have eaten the squid's tentacles on numerous excursions.

Hey! I'm generally hungry, but am ravenous now. Eating time!

Hainault loop next, then there are just a few west London stations to finish off the network.

Preferably starting from one end or the other!

Well, a new system's taking everyone across districts.

Have you tried looking at a map? Just in case any other Tube Challengers need reminding, the stations of the Hainault loop are:

Wanstead, Redbridge, Gants Hill, Newbury Park, Barkingside, Fairlop, Hainault, Grange Hill, Chigwell and Roding Valley. (We actually did the last two earlier in the game when we took a wrong turning!)

Growth's arguably not the solution. Have incomes levelled lately?

But a reliable key indicator's needed. Growth simply isn't doing enough.
