Why not challenge rail bosses and board members to spend one day in wheelchairs, mobility aids and glasses to impair vision, and to travel on trains in remote and rural areas and see what it is like to not have the help of a guard or conductor on the train or bus?
Maybe then they would understand why the public are opposing the removal of such help.
If they refuse, then the management will be admitting that they cannot justify the proposals! Do your best to challenge them!
Is the real reason why Jo Johnson resigned as Transport Minister because he could not resolve the problems with Northern’s plan to have driver-only trains and letting (allowing) the electrification of the Manchester to Blackpool line to overrun by months?
He, like his brother, Boris, and father Stanley Johnson (a retired MEP), are only interested in elevating their positions in the public realm, rather than for the good of Britain.
