My fellow blogger Mrs Angry was disgusted by this story, and had seen a similar incident on a bus she was travelling on. She did some digging and uncovered a sorry tale of woe.
The local paper has now picked up on the story. The Barnet Eye has heard that national press and TV are also looking at the story.

@ZacGoldsmith will protect the Freedom Pass. Anyone worried about its future needs to read this: http://www.mayorwatch.co.uk/goldsmith-labours-fares-pledge-is-a-threat-to-over-60s-free-travel/
Dan Thomas (deputy leader of Barnet Council and Tory GLA candidate) has had months to sort out the problem in Barnet, but clearly doesn't care. The only use he sees for Freedom passes is to dishonestly use as a campaign tool. Do you think it is sickening? I do.
