Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Out at this distance, being London comuterland, just over an hour by train from St Pancras station, it's £800 to rent a 2 bed house/flat, with an extra £600 to spend on monthly train tickets to get to work if you work in the London.

That's insane.

An hour by ordinary commuter rail... that's what, 100 km? And you're not crossing any expensive bridges or tunnels.

Two adults, monthly rail cards, 100 km, no choke points, that shouldn't work out to more than £100-200. Tops.

What has the UK been doing to its rail net?
