Thameslink commuters have had enough. We need a new deal | Daisy Cooper
We’ve been failed by Govia Thameslink and Chris Grayling. Now we’re taking matters into our own hands
On Tuesday, normally mild-mannered commuters from St Albans waved placards and chanted outside London’s St Pancras station in protest at the new Thameslink timetable, which has brought misery to thousands of people. Inspired by those who protested against Govia’s Southern Rail, Govia Thameslink passengers are also now taking to the streets.
Delays and cancellations have been a daily occurrence since the new timetable was introduced in late May, but those at least are recorded by the industry. It’s the physical, mental, financial and professional impact that takes its toll the most, but this isn’t factored into any offer of compensation. This is why St Albans commuters are taking matters into our own hands.
