Labour MP brands Stagecoach boss a dinosaur over transport plans
Michael Dugher criticises Martin Griffiths for opposing party’s proposals for more public control of trains and buses
Labour has lashed out at Stagecoach, Britain’s second biggest bus company and the winner of the east coast rail franchise, as “dinosaurs” after its chief executive criticised the party’s plans for more public control of transport.
Responding to comments made by Stagecoach’s chief executive, Martin Griffiths, in an interview in the Guardian, shadow transport secretary Michael Dugher said: “Martin Griffiths is complaining about being underpaid, but he earned £2.2m last year, including a bonus of £600,000. What planet does he live on?”
