We the people deserve an efficient, affordable and reliable transport system. That’s not too much to ask.
These train companies claim they cannot run trains (or buses) without subsidy, yet are still able to post massive profits each year.
You cannot run a national network by splitting off the different parts. This privatisation was all a lie anyway, aimed at just making vast sums for the few.
I support the idea of bringing back British Rail because it is ridiculous to think it’s cheaper to fly than to take the train. We’ve had enough, Cameron.
As a retired British Rail Civil Engineer I will confirm that, with a direct labour workforce of BR employees right up to Chief Civil Engineers, we rocked.

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.
