|FREE BUS PASSES BOOST THE ECONOMY
||[Jan. 28th, 2011|05:38 pm]
For every £1 to go out and £1 to get home most will spend at least £5 on drinks such as coffee tea and cakes etc. Most users of the passes will spend well in excess of this on shopping etc. Should the 'Free Bus Passes' be stopped the effects of lost revue streams to both the Government and the retail sector would be catastrophic especially in this financial crisis. Jobs would be lost, a vast number of shops would close and public services especially in rural areas would be severely effected as cuts were implemented, further isolating the rural communities...........|
The affects of reducing 'Free Bus Passes' in any way on the elderly whose pensions have been severely crippled by Governments mishandling of 'Taxes on Pension Funds' by what many consider as Brown's Legitimized Robbery solely to falsify Browns achievements would be dire
The affects on the NHS would be catastrophic as many elderly people would have declining health problems by being 'House Bound' with lack of exercise. Hence cutting down on the use of these passes for the elderly in any way could result in higher costs to the TaxpayerIf we could run all Public Transport on this 90p a gallon Hydrogen-based fuel, which is also Carbon Free, the economy could gain another big boost.
Perhaps the Bankers after receiving so much bad publicity (such as excessively high Bonuses) when the pubic are struggling to survive after catastrophic loses in the Banking Sectors should consider investing into the > FREE BUS PASS < Systems as the Banking Sector does already in Guernsey. After all for a relatively small investment you would boost retail shopping for a start which feeds back to the Banks, just a thought. Especially as it was the public who have bailed the ‘Banks Out’, surely one good turn deserves another?
