The Canary has the story on its web site – see link above

If you, like me, despair at the march of privatisation though our public services (and lets face it all 3 main parties have have had a hand in it) then this report makes sobering if somewhat unsurprising reading.

Will Liverpool Lime Street appear in this or a future list for sell-off? What will be the consequences for the travelling public? Will we find it leads to restrictions about who can access the stations? Will even bigger car parking charges be imposed at privatised stations?
