Should we just renationalise British Rail?!
In light of the recent Fiasco over Virgin failing to secure a single contract to run a railway line, I thought this could be quite fun to consider.
Personally speaking I've been incredibly confused by the array of different pricing options since privatisation too... I'm often left puzzling over whether a super dooper return is better than a humdinger off peaker... maybe if I stand on one leg the price may reduce further?! Shit it's gone up.
Too much choice?! Do we miss good old British rail? Are we craving, nay yearning to a return to the simple life?
As an aside, I went to a post office to have in item returned to Amazon the other day. Who the frig are collect + ?! Never heard of them, but it was flipping annoying knowing I'd gone to the wrong place. Can we have one postal system too please?! Just one that's better ran the state run shambles we had before?! Is that too much to ask?
You see, me personally I'm not a Socialist, and my arguments isn't made from an anti competition, or anti capitalist view point.. it's made from a desire to make my life simpler and easier... that is all!
