RMT slams franchise chaos on Britain's railways as Southeastern granted a Government extension

General Secretary Mick Cash said?;

"The cancellation of the competition for the Southeastern franchise shows yet again that the whole privatised rail system is broken and coming apart at the seams. The chaos of short-term extensions to get the Government off the hook is a measure of just how rotten their rail policies are.

"You cannot run a serious and reliable rail service on the hoof and yet that is what the Government are doing and passengers paying a small fortune to travel on the Southeastern services will be rightly outraged.

"The only viable alternative to this nonsense is public ownership and that is exactly the model that the Williams Review has explicitly ruled out. "
