On Your Side
Mark Reckless believes that with the recession there is a good chance we can now persuade Southeastern to set CTRL fast service fares below the 35% premium proposed by Labour. Otherwise the service will fail because it will be unaffordable to Medway residents.
If elected as our Conservative MP Mark will also work to get the inflation plus 3% rises on standard fares cut back.
Angry commuter and http://www.medwayfaredeal.com/ founder Chris Irvine (pictured with Mark) responded:
“We are grateful for Mark’s support. People are already worried about staying in work and shouldn’t have to worry about getting to work.
We have all heard of Highway Robbery but this is Railway Robbery.”
