The First Cut Is The Deepest - Bus Route Disappears

It's begun.

There's a story in the Newcastle Journal today about a bus route being axed - (

"People have approached me practically in tears because they are so upset about it being withdrawn," said the local county councillor John Shuttleworth.

It is a sad day. This will only be the tip of the iceberg. But the routes I drive will have a different reaction from the passengers. I think it will be more forthright and angry. They are the sort of passengers who will not lie down and take a decision that they disagree with lying down.

The school child was waiting in the usual spot and glared at me, looking daggers as she boarded the bus. It was the first school day after half term.

"You're late," she said coldly. "Later than usual." Off she walked rudely down the bus.

Perhaps the council could be persuaded to terminate this route early.
