999 number of the beast says...

What nobody knows is that they are a private funded police force! That's why our rail fares keep increasing and they are also a misnomer because they deal mainly with trains. However they call themselves BTransportP but have nothing do with buses or planes!
Finally they are a total complete set of incompetent fools especially if you have the misfortune to use the trains in Larndon or is that the two faced lying gits the MET!
