16-12-2004 00:21On November 2, the FT reported that there was a boost to railways as £20bn borrowing planned. It forgot to tell you that there will be no boost as Network Rail plans to take £20bn of taxpayers money over the next 5 years.
Network Rail is an unprofitable company set up by privatisation Government approved thief Adrian Montague, an ex-City lawyer who specialises in drawing up financial schemes that are called things like we need "£20m using the bond market to invest in the UK rail network and to refinance its existing debt. We need to be backed by a long-term indemnity from the government." FT dum people either do not understand or have been editorially sanctioned to tell you this means you the taxpayer will be paying.

15-12-2004 23:25Crossrail, a rail line to benefit rich City workers get between the City of London and Canary Wharf and Heathrow, is set to cost London taxpayers over £15bn at 2002 prices.

Here's the deal, we do not know how much it will cost, just start the scheme up, oh dear it costs much more than we thought, guess what we gave taxpayers a stake in this for 30 years, to keep it going we need your money for the next 30 years. thank you for being so co-operative each and everytime we do this to you.
