Should we nationalise railways or wait for Hyperloop?

Jeremy Corbyn wants to renationalise the railways, along with gas, water and electricity. Not a bad idea, says Phil Dobbie in the latest Balls Radio podcast.

With the help of a Thomas the Tank engine extract he explains why privatisation was a bad idea, and looks at one rail network that was never sold off – the London Underground. It is subsidised, but not by as much as you might expect. Plus, why you shouldn’t spend too long sitting on the toilet.

What is Balls Radio?

Balls Radio is like talk radio, but for thinking people. Now a short daily occurrence, Phil Dobbie offers his opinions on what's happening, in the UK and overseas: politics, social policy, economics, science, religion. Yes, it's another, slightly overweight middle-aged white man telling the world how it should be. But there's nothing alt-right about Balls Radio. And we try and have fun along the way.
