Bob Crow, the general secretary of the RMT union, has criticised the Government's decision to sell its stake in Eurostar:
It is typical of this right-wing Government that they are prepared to flog off the valuable public stake in Eurostar just as this expanding and important service is moving into a new period of growth ...
You can bet that the French government will hold on to their stake in Eurostar and may even now bid for a total takeover, using the profits to invest in their own transport services while we flog off the last of the family silver.
