A transport union boss has described the Government's announcement to privatise the East Coast main line as "profiteering".
General secretary of the RMT Bob Crow said: "Despite wasting hundreds of millions of pounds of taxpayers' money on the franchising circus, and instead of learning the lessons of the privatisation disasters on the East and West Coast main lines and across the rest of the network,
the Government has this morning given the green light to a whole new wave of profiteering that will have the train companies laughing all the way to the bank."
