Strains

to privatise the NHS and keep the railways privatised, all at our expense and with no risk to them

 

 

HORRIBLE TRAINS

 

No window view

No shoulder room

Stink of toilets

 

We are assured that sitting in such discomfort is the price to pay for the incredible speed that the trains travel at.  Can this really be true?

 

London to Manchester

 

Fastest regular journey in a tilting “Pendolino” with windows like tiny portholes and so little shoulder room that even a small person can’t sit straight is

2 hours 7 minutes

 

London to York

 

This is slightly further than London to Manchester.  Till Virgin replaces them, you can do this journey in a non-tilting 1970s diesel train with a window view and plenty of shoulder room in

1 hour 51 minutes
