Sinn Fein are for monopolies lol.

Screw competition and choice and just get the citizens to pay up.

Is there something wrong with introducing competition on routes to get a more efficient better services for customers? The Cork-Dublin route could do with it as it is quicker and cheaper to drive or get a coach either way now.

I assume that you eschewed Ryanairs cheaper flights for expensive Aer Lingus when they were state owned?

Competition improves service.

You ever travel by train in the UK? Privatisation doesn't always improve service

Yet again it has to be pointed out to you that this is not the UK.

And again no one is arguing for full privatisation.

People vote with their feet and wallets hence the success of Aircoach.

French,Dutch and German national railway companies run private routes at a profit in the UK.

How many route tenders has Irish Rail successfully tendered for and currently run?
