BRITAIN’S PRIVATISED RAILWAYS ARE A SHAMBLES AND A RIP-OFF!
To add insult to injury we now find out that the new Hitachi Inter-City trains will need to be fitted with diesel engines due to electrification delays and that the taxpayer is facing a bill of £3 million a week for new trains that will be left idle. This at the same time as jobs, safety and services remain under threat from cash-led cuts.
It is a scandal.
