Seamus Milne writes in today's Guardian that renationalisation of the railway system could be the right way to go.
The solution could not be more obvious. It's to rebuild a publicly owned and integrated railway. That can be done at zero or minimal cost, by bringing back each franchise into public ownership as the contracts expire.
Remember the Virgin Trains mess? Later an official report into what went wrong will be made public.
The Government has been forced to admit the profitable West Coast Main Line contract has yet to be signed, thanks to a legal bid by Virgin.
