Train wrecks derailing Labour
The Tory party started privatising the rail network and Blair, being the leader of the
new (TORY) Labour party, continued this policy, creating dozens of little railway companies
and a fat slow railtrack to maintain sections of the line.
The result, death and chaos, higher fares and fewer trains.
Now Blair is trying to the blame for the lack of railway investment on the rail
Private companies are responsible (quite rightly) to their share holders NOT the public.
Does Blair honestly believe the market needs to have free control of every aspect of our lives?
I hope not.
