Continuing on yesterdays theme of public transport, I see that our bus company Lothian Buses is putting up fares from April 6th by 10p, which, by my calculations, is a 10% increase.
Now, there are lots of reasons for the increase but I am certain that the Libdem manifesto said that they would ensure rises of no more than inflation plus one per cent. Even in these times of credit crunches and sub prime mortgage problems, inflation plus 1% is nothing like 10%.
Yet another broke promise and its not even 12 months since the SNP/Libdems coalition was formed!
