London fares rise: Tories look set to sink
In October of last year we asked if the Tories were set to lose the next general election? Given their continued bouts of stupidity, the odds on that coming true seem to be shortening daily. London is their flagship and in the two years since Boris Johnson was elected as the city's mayor he has allowed public transport fares to rise by a third.
There may be a cunning strategy at work, here, but your friendly old Exile can't see it. The image that is being created is of an out-of-touch Tory Party that is led by the wealthy and which doesn't give a stuff for anyone else.
