PSLA commented  on this a few days ago, did put it on th FSF Addicts Facebook page, (sorry don't always remember to add it here too) 


The more worrying angle is the aim to increase it to £9 by 20 20 with no increase in the funding supplied, that is to remain the same until then.. 

I am so glad it is not my headache to sort it out anymore.. we were at breaking point when I retired with cost and funding just breaking even, no way is that the case now.
