No country for young men

Jonathan Haward, Chairman of the County Homesearch Company comments:
 
“We seriously believe that if rail fares continue to be charged at 3% above inflation for the next few years it will price out the young blood that the countryside so desperately needs.
 
“As it is, the country has an ageing population and if commuter fares soar so high the county will become a ghetto for the elderly rich, gleefully waving their walking sticks in the air as the young town families cram into unsuitably small urban apartments with their children.”
