My answer to Jeremy Corbyn can't find a seat. What is he really trying to say by that?
Answer by Desmond Last:
Jeremy Corbyn was doing his job. He highlighted overcrowding on U.K Trains.
Unless something is done about it people will use cars which cause environmental pollution. The train system in the U.K is essential if the U.K is to reduce environment pollution and to avoid continual gridlock.
The Train system is paid for by taxpayers and commuters. Many who have to stand.
Corbyn took unilateral action and why not? Richard Branson makes plenty of money out of the train system and should make sure there are enough seats – that is what the commuter pays for.
There several initiatives Branson et al could use to increase passenger capacity but they choose not to.
The same media who ganged up on Corbyn were the week before showing news reports about trains being overcrowded.
Corbyn had the initiative to do something. I am no Corbyn supporter. But as far as I am concerned the media’s attempt to portray him as doing something underhand backfired.
