another libdem broken promise

The Laotian buses fare increase is not good news. It is a result of a number of pressures but whatever the excuses, its more cash flowing from peoples pockets for the same product.

Although I understand the pressures that Lothian Buses are under, I also turn to the libdem manifesto for the 2007 election where I see a commitment that bus fares would increase under their administration only in line with inflation. Compare that promise to the real world where they have risen by much more than inflation which is actually falling.

Yet another promise at best naive and undeliverable, at worst broken beyond all repair. But then we expect little else for this lot these days.
