The blank page in my newspaper sums up the handling of our rail crisis | Mike Gilson
The Argus in Brighton has been covering issues with the Southern franchise well before this strike. Why have ministers still refused to engage with us?
The state of the railways in the south-east is rightly a scandal. Tens of thousands of commuters from Sussex are having their lives ruined, arriving too late for work and returning too late to read bedtime stories to their children, while the economy is haemorrhaging millions of pounds.
Our local football club, Brighton and Hove Albion, estimates that the atrocious service has already cost them £300,000. And they haven’t played a home game yet at their out-of-town ground.
