    Protests planned at railway-stations because of high fares.

    Protests planned at UK rail stations to mark steep hike in fares

    Unions say Tuesday’s ticket price increases – the biggest in five years – outstrip last year’s average pay rises by 50%

    Protests are planned by unions at nearly forty stations.

    This is one of the biggest rip-offs in the British market-place.

    We get rail-fare rises every year at the same time, but these ones are the biggest for a very long time.

    Don't get me wrong, but I thought rail-fares were regulated by the government.

    As usual, this government don't seem to give a damn.

    Yes, they are regulated, but it seems that they can get away with just about anything they want.

    Rail protests are seldom listened to and almost never acted upon.

    I know, as I have been one of them before this.

    I guess it all depends on how many that are protesting. The bigger the crowds the more likely the people who matter may pay attention.
