A most confused argument

Mr Doherty will tell MPs: "There is no economic reason that rail companies should increase fares every year by inflation plus 1% in an industry which receives £5 billion a year from the taxpayer.

Err, yes there is. So that the taxpayer gets gouged less so that other people can live in the country but work in the city.

  1. How about:

    There is no economic reason that rail companies should receives £5 billion a year from the taxpayer in an industry which increase fares every year by inflation plus 1%?

  2. So Much For Subtlety

    It is middle class welfare. The middle classes pay a lot in taxes. They want to live out in the Green Belt or beyond and for someone else to pay for it.

    Reasonable enough I suppose.
