Double Thinking?

Of course rail passenger numbers have doubled since privatisation. That would have happened, anyway, regardless of who had owned the railways or run the trains. 

The economy grew, so more people commuted. Especially, financial services exploded, meaning that so did house prices in London, requiring more and more people to commute further and further.

The rail privateers merely profited from this. They did not in any way cause it.
