McDonnell is indeed talking rubbish. Either you lease or buy the rolling stock, for starters. Buying it might be a good long term investment, but it's an upfront cost.
Yep, absolutely staggeringly stupid that. The only way there would be no upfront cost would be if the companies currently owning the stock and managing the services willingly donated everything to you out of the goodness of their hearts. Which is patently nonsense. There will be compensation due under each TOC franchise, the purchase cost of the stock, possibly things within workers contracts which need settling. The costs would be worth it in all likelihood, but to suggest there aren't any is just mind-boggling.
We are the angry mob, we read the papers every day.
We like who we like, we hate who we hate, but we're all so easily swayed.
Things can only get better.
