RMT hits back at RDG "fantasy rail plans" revealed today and demands public ownership and an end to private racketeering

"This is just the same old fantasy railway plans and promises of jam tomorrow that the public are sick and tired of. The whole package has been cobbled together to try and divert attention from the fact that the RDG's core business is to prop up the Tory Government and protect the financial interests of the overseas private companies that have been granted a licence to plunder Britain's railways for over two decades.

"This so-called plan for the future has been put together by the very same people who have wrecked Britain's railways since privatisation, condemning passengers to pay the highest fares in Europe to travel on rammed out and unreliable trains in the name of profit.

"Despite the claims from the Tory cheerleaders of the Rail Delivery Group any new investment in infrastructure is taxpayer and fare payer money ‎while the train companies keep their bulging wallets jammed shut and carry on hacking back on staff and safety to boost their private profits.

"The only national plan that would enable us to build for our future transport needs would be to kick out the private racketeers who are robbing us blind and bring the entire rail network under publi‎c ownership and public control. "

‎"RMT will continue to fight for a publicly owned railway as part of a fully integrated transport policy that puts the needs of the people, our communities and our economy before those of the profiteers"

Based on research commissioned by the TUCG, the book examines why costs have risen for all items of expenditure, ranging from housing and child care to food and transport. He makes practical proposals on how these costs can be reduced. He also delivers an uncompromising message to the leaders of all mainstream Westminster Parties: it is time to end the politics of austerity, an ideological project to cut the size of the state permanently.
