Thatchers dream of useless rail service realised
Thatcher pushed the publically owned and operated rail system in Scotland
and England into the private sector promising better services, lower fares
and better management.
True to his right wing creed, Blair has continued this fiasco and what have
we as a result?
A poorer safety record, more accidents, fewer trains, worse time keeping,
and now higher and higher fares. Scotrail has even increased fares on the
main Edinburgh-Glasgow line without telling anyone this week!!
