Ah the Gnat Government, don't ya love 'em? NOT!
It's been announced that First Scotrail have had their franchise extended by another three years and without any prior consultation with anyone. It seems that First (sic) will be handing £70 million back to the "Government" as part of the stitch up, sorry, deal.
The STUC have been critical of the move saying that it was "hugely disappointing".
First Scotrail were fined £473 519 last year for failing to meet standards.
At least I'll not be commuting on a daily basis by rail when I move to Kinross-shire and for that relief much thanks.
