Should Railways in the U.K be nationalised? Watch
Just responding to the last bit.
That's a complete get out clause. Privatisation has been an utter failure and you seem to be suggesting the solution is more privatisation.
It's like those who defend the American health care system by saying its 'not proper privatisation' etc.
Virtually all of Europe provides a cheaper and better run service than we do. We pay high taxes and high ticket prices yet get provided an appalling service.
If the service was absolutely brilliant I could accept the prices. But it isn't. Its awful.
What we have at the moment is far from perfect but it does seem to be largely an improvement on the past.
