There’s probably not more than a handful of people on the Island that don’t want to see the price of the ferries come down a notch or twenty.
Andrew Turner, the Islands MP, has taken up the cause to try and get something actually done about it.
You may well remember that he’s been terrier like in his pursuit for over a year, despite a bout of illness.
The approach that he’s taking is to pursue it with the Office Of Fair Trading (OFT) and has been advised is to collect as many representations from Islander as possible.
We happened to be chatting to his office a couple of days ago and they told of their frustration of trying to get attention for the campaign.
Pretty much straight after launch, Andy Sutton resigned, somewhat taking the news agenda with him, so it’s all got a little lost.
Action is Simple
If you want a chance of your ferry fare coming down, there’s something really easy that you can do now.
Pop yourself over to get things moving. If you have the inclination, it’d be lovely if you’d mention that VB sent you too.
