    The UK Government’s Transport Minister Chris Grayling must be one of the most incompetent ministers of all time. Not only fare rises but no electrification of our local lines. However there is plenty of cash for HS2 and Crossrail. Welsh taxpayers and passengers are being ripped off.

      i think thats part of the job description,not that would hinder them in any way from getting voted back in,im glad we’ve not got compulsory voting,is there anybody out there? being as we outsource just about everything now how about foreign politicians they put up their C.V. & then we decide & vote. (maybe a few from luxembourg!)

    • He’s not known as Failing Grayling for nothing. He leaves devastation behind him when he moves ministerial positions. He’d have been sacked long ago if he worked in industry.

    New Railcard for “children” – which will now include 16 and 17-year-olds –
    And the kids get to vote in the children’s assemby.
    New Labour kids policy!

    The drivers are paid way too much and unions back them up to hold the gov to ransom. Whilst this carries on and they award themselves nice year on year pay rises expect nothing different.
