This Tory UK Government ... The Railways Con

The East Coast line was in public ownership and everything I have read confirms it did far better than when run by a private franchisee.  Yet rules are rules and so Chris Grayling dutifully returns it to Virgin & Stagecoach only for them to say them need a massive bung out of taxpayers ie OUR money in order to run it at a sufficient profit. 

Surely I'm right in saying that if this any other private business they would have gone bust so will the minister for Transport now make the economically sound business decision and give it back into the hands of the public one more?   Boy, do I hope so!
