London v North Devon

As long as it has some sort of bus service Devon County Council doesn’t consider that a community is isolated.  In some cases this may mean a service that runs just once a week!

Contrast this to London where a large number of the bus services now run 24 hours a day 364 days a year (there are no bus or tube  services on Christmas Day).

From 12 September even some London tube services will run through the night on Fridays and Saturdays. Not only that, there’ll also be a service about every ten minutes!

If you live in South Molton (even worse if you live in more rural areas) it isn’t even possible to have a night out in Barnstaple and get a bus home. As for a night out in Exeter – no chance. And if you’re thinking of going anywhere on a Sunday or Bank Holiday forget it.

This is just one example of how Britain is fast becoming a two-tier nation.
