But on Wightlink, we are told, the prices are too high, the service is cr*p, the staff are rude and the coffee is awful. (The latter is true!) Oddly, much less venom is directed against Red Funnel, whose prices are equally high and whose coffee is equally awful! Recent headlines have been about voluntary redundancies and cuts to Wightlink's late evening and early morning services from January 2013.
If Wightlink continues to charge high prices, it is because people are willing to pay them and if we Island residents don't like that, we should simply stop travelling on their boats. The company would very soon have to revise its business strategy. Instead of emotive letters and tweets, how about a one week passenger strike? No-one from the Island travels with Wightlink for a whole week. It worked with rail commuters in Bristol; they got their extra carriages and seats.
