Ross O'Carroll-Kelly: ‘Public transport is for the poor and fallen’
The old dear might be ‘entitled’ to free travel, but that doesn’t mean she wants it
'This is Fionnuala O’Carroll-Kelly, the author and humanitarian, and I wish to know why I’ve been sent a – what does it say on it, Ross – Free Travel Pass?'
So I call to see the old dear – yeah, no, too nice for my own good, that’s me – and I end up hearing her before I see her. Which isn’t unusual, given that it’s 11 o’clock in the morning, the time when her fifth mint julep of the day is generally storting to kick in.
