Rail fares up again

Our wages aren’t keeping up with inflation. Meanwhile, companies are increasing the prices of everything above inflation. Rail fares are the latest to increase and I found this comment (pinched from the BBC News site) particularly true…

This is Government thinking:

We need to reduce car journeys : Increase fuel duty = less people in cars, more on the trains

Too many people on the trains : Increase fares = less people on the trains, more in cars

Then repeat above Ad infinitum.
