The UK’s first £1,000 rail ticket has been described as “scandalous” and “appalling value” by opposition MPs. The first-class return walk-up fare is from Newquay, in Cornwall to Kyle of Lochalsh, in the Scottish Highlands.

Cross Country Trains, which sells the ticket, said an advance fare was available for £561.
Whoever said that governments were run in the interests of corporations and not people? Thank you Margaret Thatcher and New Labour. This story is quite literally, First Class.
