This from Alice E Donne (Miss)...
Announcing the creation of Network Rail Consulting, Network Rail Chief Executive David Higgins was quoted as saying:
“Since the privatisation of the rail industry, Britain has not had a national rail champion operating in the international market. Network Rail has the depth and breadth of rail experience and knowledge to promote British expertise overseas and become a valuable international ambassador for our rail industry and for UK plc.".
Actually, even before privatisation we didn't have a national champion operating in the international market.
No backsliding this time, Sir David!
