I was invited to the BBC Radio 4 Briefing Room to discuss whether it is time to renationalise the railways with David Aaronovitch and Michael Portillo.
Rail commuters in Britain faced daily misery long before this week’s strike action – a combination of poor services, spiralling ticket costs and overcrowding. It’s little wonder privatisation of the railways remains a recurring and contentious feature in UK politics.
I have co-authored a new report for campaign group We Own It. In the report we assess government proposals to privatise National Air Traffic Services and the Land Registry, and involve the private sector in Ordnance Survey and Channel 4.
