In reducing the cost of living for the generation of older people who have worked and contributed to the country in many cases since the age of 15, the English Democrats will roll out free rail travel for every man and woman 60 years old and older.

The rail travel would be funded with £5 billion from scrapping high speed rail because high speed rail is a luxury that will not deliver any reasonable economic profit for the taxpayer.

My late grandmother liked to travel on the train, and I see no reason why older people can’t have free travel on the train.
