Fixing Rail Prices With Social Media.

British trains are too expensive. The government says they want to sort this out with ¬£3.5bn worth of cuts. Great! Sadly this doesn’t mean said government has agreed to foot the bill, but that there will be job cuts, fewer staff on platforms and more fast ticket machines. It would also likely mean peak fares going up, and commuters paying even more than they do now. There has to be a better way. Short of asking all the retired railway-enthusiasts in the country if they want to run the entire network for the fun of it – perhaps it’s time for some interactive social media debate. If one guy can suddenly persuade millions of people they want Joseph Kony arrested (or dead) using celebrities, Mark Zuckerberg, scores of young people and a viral video – until¬†policy makers listen (however intimidating the implications of this are) – perhaps some of these thousands of angry, intelligent commuters, can think of a solution and make their own video…

guys?
