A letter in today's Times gives the cost of a season ticket between Birmingham and London Euston at 10,567. While this may sound excessive, it works out at 0.22p a mile, a fraction of the cost of going by car before you even begin to factor in parking fees and the congestion charge.
Why should the taxpayer subsidise someone else's lifestyle choice?.
