Above are all good posts, but I think you're correct about the financial aspect. Allegedly, it costs 100 pounds in administration fees for each
pensioner bus pass. Or maybe it's 100 pounds every time a pensioner uses a bus pass ?
The answer would be to scrap the administration, not the bus passes.
Hope there's a massive (and justified, imo) outcry about this, resulting in another back down from that bunch of goons still being permitted to drive
the UK into the ground head-first.
I mean look at the situation there: the UK government is handing UK taxpayer's hard earned money to Polish girls and women (who're living in
Poland) if their Polish boyfriend is currently in the UK. And at the same time, they're floating the possibility of denying bus passes to UK
elderly, most of whom paid tax all their working lives.
