Don't begrudge over 60s bus passes

WELL done, Rachel Moore, all us over 60s were wondering who else would begrudge us the free pass.I'm sure there is a small percentage that do travel because it's free but because of her generation of bankers there are only a small percentage of people with 'hefty' pensions, the majority having been robbed by failing schemes and 1pc on savings put aside to enhance their pensions.

I'm sure there is a small percentage that do travel because it's free but because of her generation of bankers there are only a small percentage of people with 'hefty' pensions, the majority having been robbed by failing schemes and 1pc on savings put aside to enhance their pensions.

So apart from 50p off a cinema ticket Ms Moore wants to take away one of the few plusses available to a pensioner.

Perhaps she would like to see the buses travelling around empty as they did before the free passes.
