Value For Money!

“But Great Western are only there to provide a necessary service”, I hear you say.  No, Great Western is a private company, with shareholders, and government subsidies.  Given that governments don’t actually have any money of their own, it means passengers pay twice – fares and income tax.  It’s a lose-lose for everyone.  Except Great Western Trains, handed an extra little £200M in 2011-2012 because of the UK economic downturn.  Perhaps passengers can’t afford the services?  Just an idea!  When it’s all about profit, it’s all about providing the legally bare minimum service and screwing over anyone paying for the service. Their investors include some of the largest investment banks in the world. Make no mistake, these folks want money; they do not care about you or me! Or even cats! Terrible! Boo and hiss!

Shut up, customer!

Shut up, customer!

Let’s see what passengers think about their value for money, and how ticket prices reflect service!

Even BBC topical news quiz, Have I Got News For You, understands Great Western Trains!
