Gazette column: Thatcherism wrecked our public transport system

It’s “Thursday Thoughts” where I post my weekly Gazette newspaper column to my blog so you can have a read…

This week my column for the Gloucestershire Gazette is about Margaret Thatcher and how, with the loss of the bus service in Thornbury,  Thatcherism wrecked our public transport system.

To read it, simply click to my Column page.

What do you think? Did Thatcherism change our public transport system forever? Is bus deregulation acceptable & inevitable? Or should privatisation be stopped? Let me know.
