RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said: “Britain’s railways are being sold off to European state-owned outfits with the profits from our fares – amongst the highest in Europe – subsidising operations abroad.‎ Trenitalia is the latest to jump at the chance to fill it's boots on the C2C routes.

“Privatisation has failed passengers and the public by hitting their pockets and providing poor service and left foreign state train operators laughing all the way to the bank. 

“The revelation that 70% of the UK train operations are now partially or wholly owned by foreign states or their railways is nothing short of a national scandal.

"The case for public ownership of UK rail, to end this racket is now overwhelming."
