LETTER: Rail fares should be tax deductible

Rail tickets

Railway passengers in this country have been penalised for far too long.

They have been imposed upon with inflation-busting increases in commuter costs.

These record increases in commuting costs have destabilised the economy because it subtracts disposable income from Family Budgets.

The railway commuter is a voter too, David Cameron, and they have not been listened to, in my view.

I believe if government cannot be bothered to control the costs imposed upon railway commuters and railway passengers in general then they the government should implement this radical idea that has much public support — railway fares should be made tax deductible.
