In what our First Minister described as 'democratically unacceptable' the majority of the Scottish people voted to stay in the EU however the leave campaign winning the majority means Scotland will have to leave the EU agaisnt our will. We need to let our parliament know exactly how passionate we are about the EU and give our support to any possibility that allows us to remain in the EU - from the Denmark plan to a second independence referendum (this is a peaceful and fun demonstration).

Recent public transport fare increases

86Fair Fares Recent public transport fare increases

Enough is Enough. The latest fare increases from First Bus to the cost of travelling in Glasgow are a hike too far. FirstDay tickets are going from from £4.30 to £4.50 and the network-wide ticket increases 25p to £6. A five-stop journey has gone from 95p to £1:05, to £1:15, £1:20 and now £1:40, a jump of a third in just 3 years. The Aberdeen-based multinational reported an 80% increase in profits last year to £105.8m, so for a city struggling under the impact of austerity these hikes are hard to justify. We are calling on First to scrap these increased charges, in a recognition that the people of Glasgow cannot afford to push their profits any higher this year. Although they have their own issues with fare increases, user surveys regularly show much higher rates of passenger satisfaction in Edinburgh than Glasgow. In the capital, instead of a private corporation the buses remain municipally owned. It is long past time for the Scottish Government to take action against all of Scotland’s monopolistic, profiteering and in cases corrupt local bus operators. Bus re-regulation is an essential move to ensure local communities are once again served by effective, affordable, fully integrated and publicly owned transport services. Buses were de-regulated by Margaret Thatcher in 1985, creating a corporate free-for-all. The SNP supported bus re-regulation, until in 2007 they received significant support from Stagecoach tycoon Brian Souter, and dropped the idea.
