  1. Interesting view of Martin Griffiths: “Buses are 85pc-90pc of our profits. People think we’re making huge margins in UK rail, but we make operating profit margins of about 3pc on UK rail and 17pc in our UK regional bus companies. Railways are some kind of middle-class thing. People want to talk about rail. We have to accept that, but we have to keep making the case for 'bus’ in this country. Bus is still by far the most important way for people to travel and it’s a good story.”
