Bring Back British Rail
Yesterday the DfT decided that they would let Virgin Trains continue to run our West Coast Mainline for the next two years, while they look for a long-term solution.
Of course, we all know what the only real solution to this mess is... In order to ensure that we have a fair and coherent railway service in the future, we must stop all this pandering to big business and bring our railways back into public ownership.
Over the next two years, Bring Back British Rail will continue to popularise the idea of the renationalising our railway system and will lobby for a new British Rail which is ring-fenced from the incompetence and political meddling we witness at the DfT today.
Day of Action!
This Tuesday 11 December 2012, our good friends at the Action for Rail campaign are organising a nationwide Day of Action to calling for "cuts to rail fares, not rail staff".
We would love as many Bring Back British Rail supporters as possible to go along! Please check their website for all the times and locations of events taking place at stations all over the UK:
