Time to Renationalise the Railways

Here's an excellent piece from today's Guardian by Jenni Russell on Britain's chaotic, unreliable and over-priced privatised railway system and what the government needs to do. Worth sending a copy to Mr Gabor Kuncze, leader of the Hungarian SZDSZ party, who are calling for the sell-off of the excellent Hungarian State Railways (MAV)- and all other 'unnecessary' state owned assets.

I am totally for railway privatisation and think that we would just be rushing into another mistake. But I have been searching for information and the majority of the public seems to agree with this article. But I think that they should just give it a chance as the Labour government is restricting the private sector too much, meaning that the improvements needed are hard to implement
