Skipton Labour backs national rail campaign

Local Labour activists were up and about early on January 2 as rail commuters returned to work to face the latest rail fare hike.

Party members in Skipton joined Labour campaigners across the country handing out copies of the party’s ‘Daily Squeeze’ leaflets exposing the Tory rail rip off.

There was a positive response from many commuters at Skipton station to the publication that set out Labour’s plans for public ownership of the railways as well as revealing that train ticket prices are up by an average of 36 per cent since the Tories came to power. Labour’s campaign featured prominent across the news outlets throughout the day.Skipton station1.jpg
