PUBLIC transport in the UK is still not the envy of any other place on Earth, research has confirmed.
The Institute for Studies found that despite being one of the richest countries in the world, the UK could not organise ‘a p*ss up in a brewery’ especially if a bus or train was required to get people to the brewery.
Professor Henry Brubaker said: “You’d think it would be rather simple just arranging for transport to leave and arrive at a certain time, every day. And you’d be right.
“Especially if you were French, Swedish, German or from anywhere in the world that isn’t the UK.
“Also, if you were to come from any of those places you’d be paying a lot less for the ticket that could even, for example, get you where you wanted to go, on time.”
A spokesman for Southern Railways, added: “It’s great that a train being late has absolutely no knock-on effects whatsoever.”
