Tories attack public transport subsidies

The Tories on Brighton and Hove City Council want to slash bus subsidies by 15%. This will save a paltry £200,000 - the equivalent of a Chief Executive's salary package. I suppose that we shouldn't be surprised that the party of Geoffrey "Park my Jag where I like" Theobald would go for something like this.

The Tories hate this kind of public provision with a passion, and what the Tories have done in Brighton and Hove chimes in nicely with what their friend Boris has done in London, with huge fare hikes.

Don't be fooled by soft-focus Dave and his green spin. Here's an example of what they're really like.
