ROGER IS BACKING ‘ACTION FOR RAIL’.
Posted by Roger Godsiff, MP for Birmingham, Hall Green, at 11:08, Fri 28 September 2012:
Roger Godsiff says: “The railways are a shambles” and backs ‘Action for Rail’ in bringing railways back into community ownership.
He went on to say: “The railways ought to be taken back into community ownership not least because the rail operating companies and the company running the rail infra-structure have received massive grants since privatisation – far in excess of the subsidy which was paid to British Rail. The operators then make their profits and are happy to leave the public, as always, to pick up the bill”.
