This has basically been the case since the automobile became ubiquitous, and the situation has worsened as flying has become relatively cheaper. So either the taxpayer subsidises rail travellers or we tarmac over the railways and introduce speed limitless auto-routes…

The rail companies and the utilities better start investing in self-defence and explaining their case to the public, if they don’t, the most left-wing socialist government since Clement Atlee will nationalise them – with popular support.
