Apart from the large amounts of methane that regularly emit from my posterior, my contribution to global warming is my car. I tend to drive it everywhere... Which leads on to my rant: [rant] In an effort to be environmentally friendly (new years resolution bo**ocks) I decided that I'd get the train to London this coming weekend. Only to find that it'll cost me and my mate about Â£85 for the pleasure of getting a train that will be inevitably delayed! So we are now driving down. It's going to cost about Â£30-40 in petrol and parking. Bargain! The point of this is to ask why the bloody hell are the train companies able to get away with astronomical prices for a shite service? Every year they increase the cost of train travel "in order to improve service" but nothing ever seems to happen. Take a look at the latest virgin trains ads. I wonder how much they cost to produce? Why not spend the money on improving their diabolical cross-country service? I could probably fly to another country for less than it would cost me to get to London! [/rant] Well thats off my chest.
