Subsidies should go towards running the trains, not to train operating companies.
I’m fed up of paying full price for low quality service and double standards regarding blocking aisles.
I am sick of greedy rail bosses charging far too much for a service which is very often not on time or cancelled entirely. I am very tired of seeing inflated prices.
Long journeys using more than one train company are hell. These competing train companies are by nature disinclined to co-operate, directly disadvantaging the traveller.
I just cannot stand the sub-standard service of First Great Western any longer, not whilst they’re being subsidised by the taxpayer but being run for profit.

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?
