The conservatives really do hate the railways and any ideas that BR left behind don't they? Unknown to many, British Rail were involved in the creation of the channel tunnel. Obviously they're nothing to do with it now as they just sell off disused railway land however they used to also run ferries. Copying BR, guess what Euro Tunnel have also been doing? - Yes, you got it right, running FERRIES! Now the government have decided to put a stop to that too. Despite there being a so called 'free market' the competition commission has decided that ET can not also run ferries: http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/money/4958587/Eurotunnel-cross-Channel-ferries-ordered-to-... So it seems that the conservatives are determined to destroy our railway industry at any cost. Not only is Euro Tunnel now under threat, Eurostar is also under threat too having had similar happen to them - German services are supposed to be competing with them shortly too Considering the UK was the nation that gave the world the railway, it's shameful how our government is actively trying to destroy them!
