Re: Plot holes, inconsistencies, and contradictions v. 4

Or this exchange about the Knight Bus:
PoA“How come the Muggles don’t hear the bus?” said Harry.

“Them!” said Stan contemptuously. “Don’ listen properly, do they? Don’ look properly either. Never notice nuffink, they don’.”

Platform 9 3/4 is another perfect example: in the heart of a London train station, Muggles don't seem to notice students and their parents disappearing into a barrier.

I think the Tottenham Court Road situation is just a continuation of that - particularly since they Apparated into a throng of people on a busy street. In any crowd it's not uncommon for people to just pop up in front of you, so any Londoners who may have noticed wouldn't attribute it to magic:
DHHarry opened his eyes. For a moment he thought they had not left the wedding after all; They still seemed to be surrounded by people.

"Tottenham Court Road," panted Hermione. "Walk, just walk, we need to find somewhere for you to change."
