Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Off the Rails: The Crisis on Britain's Railways (Britain's Great Rail Crisis - Cause, Consequences and Cure) (Paperback)
Another excellent account of the disaster that was rail privatisation. I wish that politicians would read and learn from it, although some probably have but keep a low profile. The book sets out what has happened since the build up to privatisation and brings us up to 2002. The tragic accidents that occurred in the intervening years are explained fully, and the haemmoraging of our taxes on a flawed ideology are pointed out .There are also accounts from some members of the rail staff, which make sobering reading. The final chapter sets out a valid case for a return to Public ownership(some of which has been done in part under a different name). Altogether a thought provoking and fascinating read and not just for Railway enthusiasts. Every Taxpayer should read and note.
