Save Europe's publicly owned railways

One of the worst things about living in Britain is its rip-0ff privatised railway system.
Yet, incredibly, the European Parliament is to vote tomorrow on a proposal which if passed, would see EU member states forced to follow the totally flawed British model. All the countries of the EU have a cheaper, more reliable and more user friendly railway system than the UK, but not for much longer if this crazy scheme gets passed.
The only people who will benefit from the 'liberalisation' of Europe's railways are the big multinational corporations and the banks. The big losers will be the paying public.
Let your MEP know what you think of this madness by writing to him/her today- before its too late.
Here is a list of all Britain's MEPs and their email addresses.
