Railways need to be run as a "public service", the RMT rail union leader said today after new figures revealed more than 100,000 London-bound rail commuters had to stand during morning rush hour.
Bob Crow said:
While passengers are forced to pay through the nose to stand, crammed in on sweltering, over-crowded trains, the private companies running these services are making huge profits in the safe knowledge that the whole racket of rail privatisation is a one-way ticket to the bank.
Until our railways are run as a public service, under public ownership and control, this scandal of the British paying the highest fares in Europe to travel on some of the worst services will continue unchecked.
