out of sight out of mind ?

Group "Buses For People", admittedly a left wing group, campaigning against bus route shrinkage in Fife, claims this about the SNP paradise that is going to inspire us to vote Yes:

The SNP Scottish Government slashed a full fifth from the Bus Service Operators Grant, forcing most operators to nudge up fares or scale back services - or withdraw.

Isolated villages across Scotland home to the unemployed, young or old, or disabled are increasingly unable to access essential services as transport links are withdrawn from local people.

Bus operators have been told that their grant is to be cut by 20% from April 2012. The Confederation of Passenger Transport has warned that it could have “a far-reaching impact on many bus passengers” and lead to increased fares and cuts to local services.
