Some of our franchised networks are actually run by the nationalised companies of European countries, and we get charged horrendous amounts whilst their domestic citizens get very reasonable fares.
We are literally subsidising the cheap fares people pay in other countries. It’s an absolute fucking joke.
An actual majority of the British public support nationalizing the railways. I’m a big fan of nationalisation generally but almost nobody else is in terms of the electorate, I think the fact that people are when it comes to railways shows just how broken the system really is.
