Now your talking Bollox, the NHS is a basket case over run by lazy good for nothing managers and trust directors earning a fortune compared to hard working doctors and nurses and who put them their Labour.
The sooner it's privatised the better, it's just not sustainable in its present form.

The Majority of Doctors are overpaid too; Man04 is right about the NHS,  it is a complete basket case full of over paid Managers. The real heroes are the Nurses and some few of the Junior Doctors. The more money you put in the worse it gets so we put in more money in and so on...

Corbyn  certainly is a breath of fresh air for the Conservatives.
With his outdated  thinking dating back to the 1940s.
The trains in this country are a lot better than that crap that was British Rail. Putting companies back into the Goverments hands ? Really ? How 20th century.
Anybody who uses Southern Rail on a daily basis, knows that the sh1t that they have to put up with over the last 12 months, is totally unacceptable.
I work in South London, and I can struggle to recall when I had two consecutive days, when my scheduled train was not cancelled. The issue was, who closed the doors. Driver or Conductor. Personally I couldnt give a fu#k who closes them.
If the RMT were not on strike, then they were phoning in sick. Trains did not run, because there were no conductors, this meant that the knock on effect was, the drivers were in the wrong location, so their scheduled train could not run. Every day I would hear the station announcer at Victoria, say, "will the driver of whiskey delta blah blah, make himself known immediately. In other words, where the fu#k are you?
The words "this train has been cancelled, due to a temporary shortage of staff" are still ringing in my ears.
You get on one train, and sit there for twenty minutes, if you can find a seat, only to be told that this train is now cancelled. You know have to find another one. You and the hundreds of other people waiting in the concourse. Thats if they will allow you on. Twice at London Bridge, I have seen ticket barriers being closed, and trains being sent out empty, in order to prevent a rush of people. Thats after they give you ONE minutes notice, of what platform its arriving on.
I have been on trains that have just terminated at East Croydon, and according to the very embaressed conductors announcement, " the driver has informed me.."
I have even been on one train, when just south of Purley, it ground to a sudden halt. Sorry about the delay, said the driver, but we appear to be on the wrong track. We had to make very slow progress to the next set of points.
On a regular basis, my working day became about 15 hours. You have just got in, had something to eat, and a shower, and the alarms going off again.
I have ended up using the number 60 and 405 bus on a regular basis.
Southern rail better than British Rail?  You can kiss my @rse.
Rant over.

Thanks for that Frank.
Just to let you know I don't read the Mail, maybe you should stick to the comic of the Daily Mirror, much more suited to your lower intelligence.

I don't line the pockets of any of the news paper owners. I don't need telling what to think.

Intelligence, any lower than yours and I would live at the bottom of a pond.

Also 35% of Southern Rail is owned by Kelios, France's largest transport group. Again, the profits made essentially go to improving France's public transport and making it cheaper. Kelios used to own 45% of First TransPennine Express as well. Being in the EU has no bearing on this either, basically the results of franchising.

It costs me just over three grand a year, in train fares, just to get from Coulsdon to central London. I have no other option, due to congestion charging, and extortionate parking fees. Southern Rail know this, and once they have your money, they treat you like sh1t.
The train that was previously eight coaches, lets cut it to four. You should see the look on peoples faces, when it pulls up at Purley, and they realise that there is no way that they can get on board. It is full, sardine class as we call it. No room whatsoever.
I dont care who owns the franchise, I just want a train that runs on time, and I dont have to endure someones armpit or rucksack shoved in my face. The rules about transporting cattle are more lenient.
The situation is so bad, that Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, is considering taking action, to strip Southern of their franchise, and hand it to TFL.
And not before time. Southern Rail better than British Rail? You can kiss my @rse.

It makes a difference if the profits the franchise make are spent on improving transport systems in an entirely different country. Sorry to hear about your exploits, I'd rather commute to work on a segway than bother with the trains.

No, having worked in London for a few years, I can confirm that the vast majority of cyclists there are either sociopaths or morons, either oblivious to the traffic around them or actively trying to be as awkward as possible. I lost count of the number of times I saw them almost cause a nasty accident through sheer belligerence or ignorance, on occasion you'd see two or three incidents a day.

I think my "favourite" encounter with a cyclist came when I was crossing the road near Cavendish Square (by the way, when I say crossing the road, I don't mean "chancing it when I saw a break in traffic", I mean "on a pedestrian crossing with a green man showing"). Suddenly, a cyclist came flying through the red light, missing me by inches. He was quite aggrieved by this and called me a twat. Suffice to say he got a strongly worded response, to which he took exception and started to mutter something over his shoulder at me as he pulled into traffic and straight into the path of not one but two double decker buses! I'll never forget the look on his face as they both banged their horns.... Evil
