It was £160 for the upgrade, on top of the ticket.
But that's largely because of the rail privatisation they pushed through last time they were in power. So fuck 'im.

Once admitted to the prime minister's circle, Mr Mitchell would privately joke about feeling socially inferior among the Old Etonians. As a mere Old Rugbeian, "I am there to serve the drinks." ... The task of trying to keep Conservative MPs in order now falls to Sir George Young, who was sacked from the cabinet in the reshuffle just six weeks ago, took his dismissal with characteristically good grace, and enjoys one of the speediest ever resurrections to the front rank. Sir George is a famously courteous man, unlikely ever to be involved in an incident of gate rage, which no doubt commended him to the prime minister. He is also a baronet and an alumnus of that posh training school near Slough. This must be the greatest of the ironies of "plebgate". The ultimate result is to increase the number of titled Old Etonians sitting around the cabinet table.
