    Yup thats about the cost of train nowadays, typically £160-£170 from the smoke to the green green grass. I would suggest national express coach but the fare they want nowadays are up there ( but have a look in advance ). mad crazy, some would say that the elite don't want people travelling to attend marches or demos or even to see loved ones (separate the oiks )

    you could try buying single tickets from london to bristol, bristol to cardiff sometimes this is cheaper. or you could try flying from london to cardiff about £60 one way i think. if you want me to have a look PM ME.

    Notice how the system screws the poor disorganised fucker?

    Same philosophy as phone booths. Only the poorest fuckers have to use a phone box to phone home, and in recognition of that fact...BT charges them 3 quid a minute.

    No one ever said life was fair though eh
