He left lots of relevant fact out ( deliberately?).In no particular order, effect (s) of rail strikes, success of franchising, effects of revolution on railways, effects of Covid crisis and it's cost, railways are in public ownership and " nationalism" is a misnomer, Labour did little to help railways or try to reverse franchising, opening of new lines ( eg.Borders railway, E-W in pipeline),constructional problems that would be associated with making Castle field Corridor difficult etc, etc.

What solutions did he put forward?
