Just the ticket

Taking a train out of Finsbury Park, North London, last night I noticed that the ticket inspectors are now badged Revenue Protection Inspectors. Nice!

It does raise the question, though, that if ticket inspectors inspect tickets, do Revenue Protection Inspectors inspect revenue protection? If so, what does that mean? The RPIs certainly weren't inspecting any tickets on my train..

Just a thought, maybe the 'ticket inspectors' weren't ticket inspectors at all, just inspectors of another kind that happened to be on the train. That might explain why the didn't look at any tickets.
