The government has nationalised the East Coast mainline after National Express floundered.
I know a lot of conservatives will be horrified by this, but personally I think the whole damn lot should be brought back into public ownership*. I never could see the point of privatising the railways - the taxpayer was always going to end up paying for it one way or another anyway - and I've never made it a secret that I believe certain things should be in public ownership.
I don't see this leading to a mass nationalistion of the railways, though - more's the pity.
* I know this seems at odds for someone who claims to be a conservative, but as I've remarked before, my politics are not that straightforward. They are a mixture of various different ideologies formed through various influences and a wide variety of sources over decades - not learned by rote from a book or by narrow selection of opinion.
