UK bus companies get £400m bailout. It is not accompanied by conditions - e.g. keep jobs, curb executive pay, dividends, end tax dodging (Stagecoach, Arriva used tax avoidance schemes); corporate governance reforms. Abuses and scandals will follow.
Greater funding to keep bus routes running during the coronavirus pandemic.

It’s an abuse and a scandal to start with!

Running public buses is not an abuse or scandal. I do not have a driving licence. So I rely on buses for many journeys.

It should be a condition of all government support that the recipient not engage in abusive avoidance schemes in the future with the bailout withdrawn if they avoid.

It should certainly be linked to public regulation of buses as in London. Will be interesting to see if TfL gets similar subsidy. Probably not for political reasons.
