The BBC today reports that Britain's first £1000 rail fare has now been achieved. Congratulations to all involved! After all its not as if railway companies want people to travel by train. Customers, even first class ones with more money than sense in this case, just mess up trains. It would be far better if trains could be kept empty.
Wait a minute. Maybe railway companies could encourage people onto trains and make a profit by selling tickets to them. Nah, that'll never catch on.
