That is what the Liberal Democrats are doing for our community and for once I support their cause. At least someone is standing up to Southeastern Railways (our crappy train company) who are putting up the rail fares by 10.7% in 2009, which is totally ridiculous considering their service is SHIT!
Our station, which was replaced with a brand new building is incomplete. It doesn’t have any facilities such as toilets, chairs along the platform. It has been poorly designed with little or no protection from the wind, cold or rain. There are meant to be lifts, but they are blocked up. They keep making promises that things will be sorted out, but they are way past their deadline. The station has been a disaster area for over six months and there is no sign of a completion date. The trains are always late or cancelled for no apparent reasons. Most times there is little or no communication. The service is just dire and South Eastern Railways have a massive cheek to put up the fares, especially when everything is rocketing in price around us.
