Cyborg fined for riding train without valid ticket

Re: Thanks for the antipodean information...

Because it's to do with the rules. It matters not a jot if the principle is the same, it matters if the rules are being followed. It matters if the TICKET is valid not if the fare has been paid. The fare having been paid is part of but not the same as the ticket being valid. How many ways can I put this?

As an interesting aside, for the last week or so UK transit operators whose services intersect with Virgin train routes have been told, when validating through ticketing, to accept avocados as proof of discount validity for 26-30 year olds.
