Re “Britain’s rail fares are by far the hghest in Europe…”
Here are your options, then. Vote Labour for the highest rail fares in Europe. Vote Conservative for the same (like last time they were in power). Vote LibDem for what Norman Baker calls “an immediate fare freeze” – that is, freezing rail fares at the hghest level in Europe.
Or vote Green. We will commit to spending the £500m a year necessary to bring our rail fares in line with those on the continent. We can easily afford it, given that we’re spending up to three times that much each year building, widening and repairing motorways and trunk roads.
