Should our rail services be renationalised? – live debate
Amid strikes, rising fares and delays, join us from 12pm to 2pm to discuss whether it’s time to put our rail service back into public ownership
It’s been a week when the state of Britain’s fragmented rail network has again been on the agenda, with strikes on Southern and a planned one on Virgin East Coast services. What’s more Eurostar workers are expected to walk out on Friday over work-life balance. Even before this passengers on southern trains have complained of weeks of delays, cancellations and a reduced timetable amid staff shortages. So, what’s going on with our rail services and how can it be improved?
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has a solution: renationalisation. Corbyn said the “misery” that those travelling to London on southern rail have faced makes a “very good case” for a change of ownership.
