“We had agreed that as the £34,000 was the equivalent of my season ticket between home and the three stops to work, I would just receive a free season ticket” he explained.
“That didn’t include drinks, food or any level of customer service but I could have stretched to a cup of tea and egg mayo sandwich out of my £675,000 salary. Not every day though, maybe just once a month.”
He has made the decision because of the overrunning engineering works that have caused havoc around the country’s rail network.
“I have to take responsibility for ruining the Christmas season for many passengers, and that’s why I have turned the ticket down.” He continued.
“That, and I couldn’t use it anyway. Have you tried catching a train recently? No bloody chance.”
