Privatisation is not progress. I want to be able to afford to use the train.
What are the benefits of privatisation? Profits for foreign companies, confusion on focus within the industry, lack of re-investment, and the trains belonging to the bank.
Privatisation doesn’t work. It leads to fragmentation, loss of transparency, often worse conditions for employees, and usually ends up costing more. And they dodge tax.
Current arrangements are inefficient and over-complicated. There are better ways to spend government subsidy.
I agree that British Rail should be re-nationalised.

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.
Has the government's decarbonisation policy hit fever point?
but as it doesn't affect them, they don't care
