I've told my MP to stand up for cheaper train fares; will you?!

Paying for a season ticket takes an increasing percentage of average earnings, for example a season ticket from Peterborough to London will now take someone on an average salary a full 14 weeks of wages to pay off. This is causing real hardship for commuters across the country and we hear from many people who are being forced into life-changing decisions like leaving their job or moving house as they are simply being priced off our railways. Now an Early Day Motion (EDM 646 ) has been tabled in the House of Commons stating that "rail fares are too high". Any MP can sign this EDM - so let's get as many as we can to add their names to it!
