Letter: Mailbag - Critic on the wrong track.
IT is Jason McCartney who is on the wrong track criticising Number 10 for the increase in new rail fares. It was a Labour Government who nationalised the railways so they came under one umbrella, British Rail (BR). There was none of this being told by the ticket collector, your ticket was for another company and have to pay a hefty surcharge. It was a Conservative Government who privatised rail against both Liberal and Labour opposition. Colne Valley Conservatives would do well to select a less ill-informed candidate than him.
