Co-op Trains?

Do not be distracted by this, for such is its intention.

Some things belong in mutual ownership. Some things belong in private ownership. And some things belong in public ownership.

One of those last is the railways.

So do not speculate that these co-ops might be run by the relevant trade unions. They are strongly in favour of a nationalised (and thus national, not regional) railway service. They are right.


  1. Do you ever pop into the co-op in the village David?

    1. There isn't one.

      And it wouldn't be the right model for the railways even if there were.

      Honestly, have you ever heard this before? Co-operative railways? This is just an attempt to muddy the waters. Don't fall for it.
