The peer also cited the current example of off peak fares, saying that "because of very lax negotiation on the part of the government, off peak is defined as only about five hours a day" and train companies were trying to reduce that further.

"Off peak" restrictions are one of the biggest annoyances I know for when I want to go back up north after being in London for a weekday. I either pay £200+ for a ticket, or I don't get home until 9pm at the earliest, even if I manage to finish early at 3pm. It's a load of fucking bollocks at the moment, if you ask me, and they want to reduce it even more? Bunch of greedy monopolistic wankers the lot of them.

Off-peak has pissed me off recently due to its confusion and complexity. On First Great Western there are Off-Peak and Super Off-Peak tickets, the times of validity for each are different, and even within one ticket type the valid times depend on which station you are travelling to...
