At this evening's Downing Street briefing Shapps basically said if we can build a hospital in a few weeks why does it take 20 years to build a new road. How the heck did somebody as thick as Shapps get in the cabinet?
That'll be one of Michael Green's "'Get roads quick' schemes.)

Britain's railways will be 'renationalised' using emergency coronavirus measures - ending the current franchise system

Now hang on a minute; how is this different to what we have at the moment, or is this Classic Dom's attack on the ORR and Network Rail? Or have they actually realised that the current system genuinely doesn't work?
Mr Shapps' new system, which he will likely oversee as part of a board, would give control of fares and timetables to ministers.
