RMT slams latest rail rip-off

RMT Press Office:

RMT slams latest rail rip-off that's set to lose taxpayer £10 billion.

Rail union RMT today slammed the Government after it emerged that the latest great rail rip-off is set to lose the taxpayer £10 billion.

Research published this morning by We Own It shows that the Tory slash-and-burn sell off of Network Rail stations, commercial property and other assets is set to rack up a net loss in fees and income of £10 billion over the next decade.

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said

"RMT said all along that the sell-off of Network Rail assets was a grotesque false economy. This research proves that we were right.

"Only a fool, or someone with a twisted political ideology, would  sell of our national rail assets at a loss. The Tories hit that mark on both counts.

"The flogging off of stations and infrastructure should be halted immediately‎."
