Many wish to re-nationalise the railways, well Network Rail is a public body, with, it appears, a £40 billion debt.

When the Railways were a nationalised industry the investment was never sufficient because nationalised industries are used as a political tool by whichever party is in Government.

Privatisation may not have been ideal, but is that not down to the contracts they signed when the industries were privatised.

Why not get the contracts correct and then see which is better before creating more political tools.
