THIS Government isn’t even bothering lying to us any more.

It seems content to let the north rot in order to enrich the south, acting as though the entire UK is solely London and the south west.

It is horrifying that the rest of the UK will have no money spent on it yet be asked to pay even more, while London will be privileged with state funds being spent on privatised rail.

It is ludicrous that in this day and age we aren’t able to have an equal rail service for the whole country.
