Rail Fares Set to Rise at Fastest rate in 5 Years

   Oscar Webb 15thAug

The hike in rail fares will make life even harder for struggling households seeing the cost of goods and services rising, wages dropping and consumer debt growing.

Rail fares will increase by 3.6 per cent next year, the government announced today, adding yet more pressure to households suffering stagnating wages and incomes squeezed by inflation.


Millions of rail users will suffer the greatest fare increase in five years whilst prices of other goods and services continue to grow at 2.6 per cent per year with inflation, today’s ONS figures showed.


The hike in the cost of rail travel, which will come into effect in January 2018 and is pegged to July’s 3.6 per cent retail price index (RPI) increase, was slammed by rail unions.


The RMT general secretary, Mick Cash, said that the increase in fares were a direct result of privatisation, which was bad for passengers and staff:

Theresa May must be having a terrible holiday as new data reveals that Corbyn is on course for a  huge victory

In just a few words Jeremy Corbyn shows the Tories how much of a threat he is.

We need to talk about Grenfell because the numbers just don’t add up

Why rallies work

I hate to say I told you so, but I told you so. Rallies in politics matter, and you needn’t take my word for it any more as Alia Middleton at the LSE has crunched the numbers. She found that where Theresa May set down during the election campaign, her visits had little appreciable effect on the outcome in those seats. When Jeremy Corbyn rolled into town for one of his rallies, the party vote share change went up almost double versus constituencies he didn’t visit. Amaze.
