Today the Coalition Government in the UK delivers a policy triumph : fare increases of up to 12.8 percent with more to come in 12 months time, so that by the time of the 2015 election some fares will have gone up 25 percent.
This in a country where rail fares are already extortionate unless a traveller is able to travel off-peak or invoke seniors status.
Consider this : some are from today being forced to pay out more than one fifth of the average UK salary for their season ticket.
And the Lib-Dems are locked into this, despite promising in the election to cut fares. Yep, to actually cut them.
