    Apropos MP wages (perhaps this is better on the GE thread but it's covered a few posts ago here) - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-46467828

    Back in the day, when I lived in Alphington St. you could catch a "football special" from Exe Bridges to the Odeon in Sidwell St. and return after the match. Can't recall the fare, but probably just a few pence.

    It wouldn't have cost very much, EB. I remember (c 1960) that I would travel from Alphington Street up to Summer Lane, Whipton, to visit my Grandma, for which the fare would be tuppence ha'penny!

    Would that have been a Greyhound Bus?
