Nationalise the railways!

Submitted by Daniel_Randall on 22 September, 2004 - 12:00

According to an ICM poll for the Guardian (22 September), 66 per cent of all voters and 72% of Labour voters support renationalisation of the railways.

Now the right-wing rail union TSSA has tabled an amendment at Labour Conference to insert rail renationalisation into a party policy document.

On this one, the big unions might fight Blair. The (predictable) massive public support may push the union leaders into a proper battle at Labour Party conference. Union members need to put pressure on their leaders to stand firm.
