Rail fare increases and taxes

VAT rise and transport increases. Taxes suck but what can you do? Transport costs are another thing entirely. Makes me so cross I feel like going out and investing in SouthEastern (and then going to shareholders' meetings and ranting. And collecting all those loverly dividends).

But seriously though. There was an article recently saying that the state subsidises half of all rail travel. So instead of being angry about my share of my monthly transport bill going up, I'll just say thanks to any and all UK taxpayers reading this for helping me out with the other half. I'm not sure why I deserve your generosity, but you're very kind!
