Because richer people objected. They didn't get any benefit from it because they didn't use buses.

I think they were more or less forced into it by Conservative government's drive to privatise everything.

Seriously???   This sort of trivial guff is the crux of your primary local issue decision making.... no wonder this city is stagnating and we get the incompetent morons of a council we have.

 

Deregulation of local bus services started from around 1979 at which time are very own council was majority controlled by........ Labour.

 

As for fright night....it was an event that was devised and operated by a private events marketing company. Why you are whining about the council boggles my mind.  Given said private events company put up the majority of the cash to run the event any decisions to cancel it would have been primarily economic on their part and it was automatically replaced by something else deemed more profit-making.   

 

Ask for the stock ridiculous moan about free parking..... the obvious fact that no city centres  offer "free parking".  Goodness sake there's been the existence of chargeable car parks and these things called parking meters since the black and white days.  Hardly some new fangled concept brought in by the evil Tories.

 

What a ridiculous excuse for a bit of tory bashing your post, in fact the majority, of this thread is

 

People need to get a grip and remember these are local elections.   Enough with this horse crap about brexit, NHS budgets, covid vaccines and Track and Trace systems. This is supposed to be about OUR issues affecting OUR city.

 

Enough with this constant red and blue cheerleading.  Actually bother to study candidates properly and make informed vote for the ones who are going to best represent the city.  That is all that should matter - not blindly following some colour choice or getting sidetracked by a load of pathetic backwards rose tinted nonsense.

The poster who decries the council removing low bus fares seems unaware it was due to the 1985  Transport Act brought in by the Conservative Gov., to deregulate services.

 

Followed the year later abolishing the 6 Metropolitan Councils all of  which were Labour run
