Renationalise the trains

As my friend OSO said on Facebook…
“The neo-liberal age of economics is over. Private industry doesn’t always allocate resources in the most efficient manner. The total cost of producing some goods and services isn’t always borne by the producer and isn’t always reflected in prices. The benefits of certain goods and services aren’t always enjoyed by the person or entity consuming them. Sometimes government enterprises are more efficient than private enterprises. The belief that private industry is superior to government is as ideologically unsound as the communists who believed that government is always superior to private industry.”
As for Re-Nationalising the railways, see The Guardian.

Re-Nationalise?
