Whatever the figures, towards the end of the 1960s it became increasingly clear that rail closures were not bringing the rail system out of deficit and were unlikely ever to do so.  Transport minister Barbara Castle decided that some rail services, which could not pay their way but had a valuable social role, should be subsidised. Legislation allowing this was introduced in the 1968 Transport Act (Section 39 made provision for a subsidy to be paid by the Treasury for a three-year period) but this was later repealed in the Railways Act 1974. Whether these subsidies affected the size of the network is questionable: the criteria for reprieving loss-making lines had not altered, merely the way their costs appeared in the railways accounts—previously their contribution to the railways' overall loss was hidden in the total deficit. 
Sadly Ignorance is bliss. We are systematically indoctrinated to believe certain dogmas or to embrace rigid belief systems such as Religions or mainstream science. The apparent divisions between us of race, age, sex, culture, religion, job and income bracket etc are mere illusions. Many people simply cannot deal with information which challenges their belief system. People either don't want to hear it, or just can't accept it. This is what researcher David Icke describes as Cognitive dissonance, it mostly takes the form of a belief contradicted by experience, information or behaviour. In 1984, Orwell describes cognitive dissonance to a tee, he calls it, rather appropriately, doublethink - this is exactly how the majority of humanity has remained in servitude for thousands of years. Most people actually fight to protect their own belief system, dismissing information that challenges it without further investigation, these are the people with their heads in the sand. If you have your head in the sand you cannot see what is going on right in front of your very own eyes. If you get off your knees and take a look at what is going on, then you can start to change it. Remember - We, the people, are the majority, we have more power than we are made to believe. That is why this conspiracy has been operating covertly for so many thousands of years, if the elite wanted to go from A-Z straight away we would all see what was going on and oppose it, but if they go from A-Z via B, C, D etc, (the fabian strategy), taking lots of steps and gradually introducing changes then the agenda becomes unclear and only those paying attention and ignoring the disinformation from the illuminati controlled media can see the real game plan.
Whereas the Principal Allied Powers have also agreed that the Mandatory should be responsible for putting into effect the declaration originally made on November 2nd, 1917 , by the Government of His Britannic Majesty, and adopted by the said Powers, in favour of the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people , it being clearly understood that nothing should be done which might prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.
