Cameron 'misled commuters with fare rise cap'

David Cameron misled commuters when he promised to cap fare rises at 1% above inflation.

Many commuters have faced a nasty New Year shock as they discover fares have gone up by as much as 9.2%.

The Government should come clean with commuters that this is a direct result of their decision to cave in to pressure from the private train companies to let them hike ticket prices beyond the so-called cap.
