All the recent bonkers Brexit-related events that have had money thrown at them lead me to conclude that the cost of something is no longer a reason for our government not to do it. If we can spend £14m for a ferry company with no
£14 million gets you one train. The new rolling stock for Merseyrail is a £460 million contract.
Railways are really expensive.
Look back at past nationalisations eg British Leyland.. I recall the government defending a very expensive appointment of some bloke called Edwardes to run and revive that organisation because his expertise was vital for its future survival 😂
I challenge anyone to demonstrate any benefits today from all that publc expenditure!
Nationalisation = Pass the buck
( The buck being public money via taxes )
@techiebloke It is the fragmentation of the railways which is most divisive & making thrvsystems so unweildy & inefficient. The pride seems to have disappeared from the railways.
Just to clarify the name Great Britain - it is a geographical term referring to the largest island with Scotland, Wales &
England. Nothing to do with the importance of the country.
@sarahaxon Isn’t that £39bn derived from money we would have spent as members of the E.U. so if we don’t leave we still won’t have it...or are you now advocating a no deal BRexit? Or are you planning a totally truthful bus campaign, because they seem to work quite well.
