RMT's Mick Cash response to Grant Shapps’ admission on Sky this morning that train companies put profits over people.
RMT General Secretary Mick Cash responding to Grant Shapps’ admission on Sky this morning that train companies put profits over people, said;
"When even hard line Tories start openly admitting that private train companies are putting profits top of their priorities you know that the days of this rail racketeering are well and truly numbered.
"Safety, access and quality of service are mere afterthoughts on Britain's rip-off railways. It is no longer a question of if the whole system is taken into public ownership. It's a question of when."
