Two separate organisations put out two different press releases this morning.
They appeared one after the other in my RSS reader – and it was the coincidental juxtaposition of the two headlines that raised a wry smile.
I am not going to argue which is correct, and I am sure that in their own way, both are correct.
New Year heralds lower fares for many rail passengers
Rail fares to rise by an average of 1.1% in January
SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE
This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.
