British Rail commuters pay ten times European counterparts, which is just brilliant
If you bought a 2011 season ticket from Woking to London with tube travel, you've paid a handsome £3,268. Now, if you did that same journey from Velletri to Rome on an Italian ticket, you would have paid a measly £336.17, according to figures from the Campaign for Better Transports (CBT).
Isn't that wonderful? Aren't you thrilled? The weather is invariably nicer in Italy too and they probably get free wine on-board.
And the CBT have been looking at similar 24 mile journeys around Europe, showing just how much more us saps cough-up compared to everyone else.
And the best bit of course is that our fares are going up from January 2nd by an average of six per cent!
Speaking on Sky News, shadow transport secretary Maria Eagle said: "UK rail commuters are taking a hit year after year after year, and all they are trying to do is to get to work."
"It does not have to be like this. We need to look at how the Europeans run their railways."
'Til then, everyone buy as many motorcars as humanly possible in a bid to make the Earth die before we're priced out of living entirely!
