Renationalising the Railways

25 June 2013

The argument for bringing Britain’s railways back into the public sector is building up a head of steam.

Aditya Chakrabortty, writing in The Guardian, says: ‘Poll after poll shows the public wants to take the rail network back into national ownership. That’s all the more remarkable, given the lack of support from major political parties (it's left to Green MP Caroline Lucas to introduce a Private Member's Bill calling for renationalisation), and the vacuum in the media where serious discussion of alternatives to the current mess should be. Far easier, I guess, to have a secret £30bn debt with our names on it.’
