Today is the first time I've seen a Tube status display saying GOOD SERVICE for all of the lines. I should have taken a photo.

I see it irregularly. The tubes are better than most people might think.

It happens about once a week, IME, but it's a blatant lie anyway: the tube has never provided a good service.

The tube provides one of the best levels of service of all public transport systems on this continent.

Londoners, of course though, are British; and hence like to complain...

That doesn't mean it's any good, it just means the others are worse...

Alternatively, it may mean that you have unrealistic expectations.

Except that you limited it to the continent, only. There are better public transport systems in Asia.

(Though, admittedly, that could be something to do with culture - people are less tolerant of vandalism)

Thsere are much worse ones in Asia, few that have to deal with some of the extremes of environment that the Tube sees, and few that haven't had more investment in the last 40 years than the Tube ever has.

Quite, but the conclusion I draw from this is "the Tube would be much better if it got more money"...

Merely "better". For "much better" you'd practically have to paper it in money.
