MP Gale says Southeastern can 'kiss goodbye' to Kent franchise

"Southeastern’s ‘fast link’ is a bad joke so far as commuters are concerned as door-to-door journey times now take longer and cost more. Why should people have to pay to subsidise a service that does not serve their needs?"

Last month a report by the Public Accounts Committee revealed problems with overcrowded trains are set to get worse. Particular mention was made to Southeastern, with passengers being forced to pay premium fares to support the high-speed service when it does not stop at every station.

  1. Spot on - why should we pay higher ticket prices for a highspeed service that we can't use! It's madness...
