    Excellent its about time this waste of tax payers money was withdrawn. i work full time and pay tax so pensioners can ride around on buses all day. Getting on a bus to go one stop its no the wonder buses are always late.

    It does not surprise me the Tories what to stop the buspasses.They promised never to do this and all they have done is hit the older person.First the winer bill.then the swimming passes.Now this.Before they got in they use to say we will help the old age pensioners.Now they have gone against that.I really believe they do not care about them at it.Do they take cut in their pay.No.Its lie after lie.

    To stop the Pensioners Bus Pass, would result in the National Health Service being inundated with the ill health of people living alone and those unable to get out of their homes. Sometimes this is the only contact they have with friends and Family.
    Towns and Village Businesses gain from Visitors.
