Ticket to Ride

Another election is looming and some people have started criticising the amount of allowances made to pensioners. I have heard people say “Even millionaires are entitled to a bus pass.” I am not aware that many people in this category use the bus. The people this benefits are usually at the poorer end of the scale.

Old people who cannot get out find great solace in television, so it is a good perk for them. If wealthy people feel guilty about it, presumably they can buy a TV licence.

It is apparently impossible to hand back one’s heating allowance – another Godsend for the poor. It would be interesting to know what rich people do with it. Perhaps they don’t even notice such a drop in the ocean in their bank account
