The Tories have been forced to nationalise the East Coast line.
The Government will renationalise one of Britain's busiest railway lines after its private operators admitted they could not afford to keep running it.
Chris Grayling, the Transport Secretary, announced on Wednesday that he will pull the plug on the East Coast rail franchise after a string of failures by Stagecoach and Virgin.
This is a failure for the rail franchise model and won't be the last.
Time to bring the railways back into public ownership.
