A bizarre Government-funded campaign is being launched to encourage people to exercise while they’re waiting for a bus.
According to the campaign’s organisers, those minutes spent at the bus stop watching the traffic go by could be spent more usefully – by standing on one leg, pointing your toes or clenching your buttocks.
But the latest attempt to get Britain fit has been slammed by an MP as ‘a shocking waste of taxpayers’ money’.
And one angry passenger said last night: ‘Fares are ridiculously high as it is. So why don’t they use the money they’re spending on this nonsense to cut the cost of bus travel?’
Leaflets and posters setting out six Pilates-style exercise moves to do at the bus stop are being distributed to passengers travelling on buses between Blackburn and Manchester.
