Which? says our railways are slower, older and more expensive

28 March 2016

The Which? investigation investigation into Britain's rip-off railways should be the final nail in the coffin of this failed experiment with privatisation.

Responding to this morning's Which? report revealing widespread passenger misery on resulting from privatisation, TSSA General Secretary Manuel
Cortes said:

"The Which? investigation into Britain's rip-off railways should be the final nail in the coffin of this failed experiment with privatisation.

"Their evidence shows what nearly every commuter knows that privatisation simply isn't working to deliver better services for or to passengers or the taxpayer.

"During this same period, private rail operators have made billions in profits whilst overwhelmingly, investment continues to come from the public purse and past and continuing privatisation of our rail industry is keeping our railways in the dark ages and the dice unfairly loaded in favour of the profiteering privateers .

"Passengers and taxpayers get better served where rail services are publicly run - as in most other European countries where rail speeds are faster, carriages newer and prices cheaper - and why we support Jeremy Corbyn's plan for a publicly owned People's Railway run in the interests of passengers of Britain not shareholders elsewhere."
