Buses & Banks have same values

The Bus Companies and the Bankers have got the same values as the rest of us, the only difference is they don’t need to do the lottery.

The buses run as a business for profit. Bankers run banks for profit. They are both run successfully, for themselves, and has very little to do with it working well for the rest of us. Its called Capitalism.

There are three types of bus route, profitable, break even and subsidized. They all fall over themselves for the profitable ones, they get paid by the taxpayers for the subsidized ones and who wants to run a route for nothing (break even routes).

It would make better sense to provide free public transport but oil, car and bus companies would have a lot to say about that.  Stagecoach owner Brian Souter made a £500,000 donation to the SDP two years ago and yes you guessed it, they dropped a manifesto pledge to reform the transport network.

Our Transport system in this country is fragmented and piecemeal not what you would expect in the 21st Century more 19th Century.

As for the bankers, well if you were offered a job that ensured you won the lottery several times a year, would you turn it down ?
