My husband worked for BR for 40 years, and he said all along not to sell and privatise. He ended up working for Alstom – the worst thing that could have happened – redundant.
The current system is a disaster.
Here we have HS1, which is great if you want to go to St Pancras, but our other services have been downgraded and, of course, HS costs more.
A cost-effective and efficient service can be achieved by a single provider of a nationalised rail service.
We need to return to a way in which the system actually works for the people, not for the shareholders!

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.
