Heard this on the 7 o'clock news this morning. All over 60s and disability travel on National Express coaches will no longer be subsidised by the government. The cost is mere £17 million - they could raise that by stopping all MP's expenses surely ?

Why should it be subsidised when the oldies and disabled already get free of charge travel on the buses?

I am 'entitled' to free bus travel and feel that it is a burden on the youngsters, those that are working that is, so do not take advantage of the concession.
I would suggest that all subsidies, including state benefits, should be stopped for all age groups which would leave money to fight other peoples wars. Make sense to you?

Dear Oldtimer, if I give up my right to free bus travel and have to pay, where will I find the money to invest in the munitions companies to fight other peoples wars,seems to be the only growth industry these days!!!!!

Easy, some of us oldies pay income tax for being thrifty and saving for our retirement; increase the tax we pay from 40% to 80% or more!!!!
