I told you so... No 2

This from Captain Deltic...

May I join in Eye's exciting new feature?

From the Modern Railways editorial in the October 2012 edition...

With eight franchise to go out to tender in the next 11 months it can’t go on like this, irrespective of the outcome of Virgin’s challenge. In one of his outburst Virgin’s Sir Richard Branson repeated the famous dictum that insanity is repeatedly doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome.  

Twenty years after rail franchising was created, it is time to end the insanity and try a more rational approach to running the railway.

Concessions anyone?
