Sounds about right - with the 'opportunity cost' (ie what else could be done with £50 billion) the total cost of rail privatisation to the UK is more like £100 billion. We would also include the cost of selling BR's assets on the cheap. This is still a national scandal which has NOT had its day. SHARE to keep hammering this message home.

18 months ago we called out Labour on the pages of The Economist - their rail policy wasn't radical enough. We were delighted when their recent manifesto conceded repeal of the 1993 Railways Act, as we lobbied them for. But there is more to do. We look forward to working with the new Shadow Secretary of State for Transport in the new Parliament, as the design of the new BR is worked through....

Good luck privatising Network Rail with a majority of TWO (Con+DUP). Here at Campaign HQ, we will not let anybody forget the collapse of Railtrack. The battle continues.

A pathetic and spineless letter from BR's last Chairman Sir Bob Reid (not to be confused with their best ever Chairman, Sir Robert Reid) in yesterday's FT. Unlike Sir Robert, who was a lifelong railwayman, Bob Reid is a jack-of-all-trades accountant - accountants taking over the asylum is one of the many reasons rail privatisation has failed. His arguments are not credible.

Standing in the way of progress. For 30 years, privately owned train and bus companies have failed to deliver a fully-integrated public transport network for Scotland's biggest city. We need wholesale public ownership and control to sort out this mess and Get Glasgow Moving!

Even Margaret Thatcher couldn't approve of the structure of rail privatisation we have suffered with for 25 years, and which those who admire her still defend despite two decades of failure. Says A LOT.

Our letter in today's Financial Times won't win us any friends at the Treasury! It is comforting that the 'national dial' has swung irretrievably in the right direction - apologists for rail privatisation are on the wrong side of the argument. We'll make sure it stays that way.

"Rail nationalisation would be a disaster". Pah! We bet this man who has stolen our photo for his article in so-called "MoneyWeek", is one of the tiny minority of shareholders in the private rail companies worried about their dividends.

"The renationalisation of Britain’s energy, rail and water companies is back on the agenda for the first time in a generation." That’s what the Financial Times said last week and it's true thanks to the work of Bring Back British Rail since 2009, and Power For The People and We Own It since 2013. Please use We Own It's online tool before the General Election to tell all your candidates...

Wonderful new economic proof that franchising doesn't work on busy railways, from the brain boxes at the University of Leeds*. If you're reading this on your morning commute, it means that the busier a country's railway is, the more sense it makes for one company to be in control of it (because there are so many more trains and this is harder to manage).

A follow up to yesterday's post defending British Rail's record of investment. In 1988 they opened Thameslink, a brand new railway linking north and south London. Don't believe apologists for rail privatisation, who tell you a publicly-owned railway can't invest for our shared future. SHARE this post to refute their lies.

In spite of what our critics may say, we are a forward-looking campaign: the new BR will by definition, 30 years and more later, not be the old BR. We want to see a world class Railway, more like SNCF than SouthernFail. However this doesn't and won't stop us from defending BR. People who don't know their facts praise the 'investment' privatisation has brought. This case is heavily over-stated....

One of the main reasons our campaign was created was to keep alive the memory of our publicly-owned railway. British Rail, which hasn't operated a train since 1997, is BACK in the public conscience, in the media and in conversations across Britain. You can bet we'll be making sure it stays there. Share this post so it's on the lips of your friends too.
