Rail Action Day Tues 3rd January
Mid Sussex Labour were out in force at Burgess Hill Railway Station for the evening rush.
Labour Party members staged protests across Sussex today aimed at pressuring the Government to act on the crisis engulfing the Southern rail network.
Timed on the day that rail fares went up nearly two per cent, members of Mid Sussex Labour handed out leaflets and talked to commuters at Burgess Hill railway station.
It’s a double blow locally with commuters having to pay more to a train company that can’t run trains on time and has broken the trust of its workforce.
Labour says it’s time for a new approach. We should bring the railways into public ownership and put passengers before profits.
