LABOUR SLAMS 25 PER CENT TORY RAIL FARE HIKE
Hard working commuters are now paying 25 per cent more for their train fares under the Tories, because of yet another year of rail fare hikes that come into force today.
Chris Vince, Labour PPC in 2015 for CHELMSFORD, has slammed the Tory government for hammering passengers and commuters. Chris said: Passengers in CHELMSFORD have been hit again and again by eye-watering rail fare rises. Fares have now rocketed by 25 per cent under the Tories, far outstripping any increase in most people’s pay packets.
For many people here, travelling by train isn’t a luxury, it’s how they get to work every day. A season ticket to DESTINATION now costs over £XXX more every year.
Labour is campaigning to give the public a real say on how our railways are run.Send David Cameron a message that we can’t afford another five years of Tory rail fare failures” Sign our petition at XXXXX
