Rail Renationalisation Plans Leave More Questions Than Answers


Len Shackleton quoted in Guido Fawkes & The i

IEA Editorial and Research Fellow Len Shackleton has been quoted in Guido Fawkes criticising the Labour Party’s new proposals for renationalisation of the railways.

The article said:

“The Institute of Economic Affairs blasted the ‘lacking in detail’ proposal, writing ‘the ritual denunciation of profits and the belief that ‘communities’ (or rather political bosses) have a role to play; but their role always seems to be to demand more money, resist closures, and open more lines, irrespective of any commercial discipline’.”
