Chris Grayling, don't bail out East Coast - bring it into public ownership!

Virgin Trains East Coast, run by Stagecoach and Virgin, has failed. Now, Chris Grayling, the Transport Secretary, says he will give in to their demands and bail them out to the tune of £2 billion.

East Coast was run successfully in public ownership from 2009 to 2015 after the last private company failure - but then it was reprivatised. 76% of us want public ownership and it would save us money.

Chris Grayling, put taxpayers and passengers first - don't give Virgin Trains East Coast a free ticket to ruin our railway. 

Bring East Coast into public ownership now!
