I think that a country’s public transport is a reflection of what the powers that be think of their citizenry.
Fares too high, fare structure incomprehensible, need to invest if we want public to be greener and use the railways before the car, need to be as efficient as Europe.
Royal Mail showed that a publicly owned business could be turned around to make a profit. It can be done with rail. Don’t let either go or stay private.
The railways have been a total mess since they were first de-nationalised by a Tory government, or should I say given away?
railways have to be in the hands of public not profits going to private companies who run away and don’t reinvest and left with public transport system in a mess.

Has the government's decarbonisation policy hit fever point?
Privatizing has buggered up the electricity industry, the gas industry, the water industry and the waste disposal industry too. Some things should be considered a service and run to provide just that at an economic cost not a way of milking the end users.
