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!!
