Overseas Ownership of Railways
We are disappointed by the RMT press release of June 24, 'RMT AGM hears of full extent of overseas take over of Britain's railways'. We oppose all profiteering ownership of the railways, regardless of the nationality of the owners.

British private owners - eg. Virgin, FirstGroup, Stagecoach, Serco, National Express and many more - are just as bad as overseas owners (whether these are private, or overseas state-owned companies acting as private companies outside their home country). We ask RMT to ensure that its campaigning against privatisation targets profiteering rather than nationality, and does not let home-grown privateers off the hook.
