So, here’s a thing: I’m going to be on telly on Monday 23rd of Jan on the BBC Panorama programme “Train fares- are we being taken for a ride?”
Vivian White investigates the rising cost of travelling by train, and the reasons behind the ever-increasing prices. Ticket fares have recently hit record levels, adding to the frustrations of passengers who are already angry at delays and overcrowding.
It should be an interesting programme even if you only have a passing interest in rail commuting. If, like me, you have a morbid fascination with how the rail system in the country is slowly falling apart, it’ll be catnip.
Plus you’ll get to see me bowling alone. Yup, you read that correctly, I bowl alone. Just like Richard Nixon.
