Can you hear that sound? It’s the sound of commuters having to tighten their belt yet again after it was announced that rail fares are to be hiked up yet again.

Every year fares are increasing faster than salaries are, and now it is beyond a joke.

And it is not even as if we have a rail network we can be proud of. It pales in comparison to most of western Europe.

Enough is enough, it is time the Government took action to put a stop to this fleecing of ordinary, hardworking people.
