Nah, that's more like the Blair/Major policy of the SRA/DPRA which were a complete disaster.

Either fuck off the train operators in the private sector (bar the heritage railways and open access operators) and bring in fully into state control or properly privatise it a la Japan and allow for genuine comparative competition into the railways sector.

Fed up of these pointless quangos.

So basically this 'nationalisation' is keeping the private companies running their services and having to make a profit whilst putting a layer on top. Wow, what could go wrong?

Only like much of the rest of the public sector where services are commissioned.

A least there's still a profit motive *somewhere* so it can never be as bad as BR.

No a reference to the 1970s is the relevant point here, you're right

Why are you using BR as a benchmark and not the directly comparable operators of last resort which have shit on the private sector owned franchises in punctuality and service?
