Local Labour members were out and about at train stations across West Lothian this week to draw attention to the state of Scotland’s railways.
Members were promoting the party’s positive vision of a publicly owned ScotRail – on the same day East Coast rail was taken back into public hands.
Local Labour MSP Neil Findlay was in Bathgate speaking to the public about the hidden costs of privatisation and mismanagement under the SNP.
Neil Findlay said:
“Labour believes in public ownership of our railways – and the commuters and passengers I speak to regularly agree that Scotland needs to remove control of our trains from those who put profit before passengers.
“While the SNP was cosying up to big business and cheerleading for Tory privatisation, Labour activists were out speaking to passengers, rail workers and communities who are excited by our vision for a rail service that works for the many, not the few.”
