Strip Southern Rail of the franchise

Strip Southern rail and the parent company Govia Thameslink of their franchise

Why is this important?

Thousands of passengers have had to put up with severe delays and cancelled trains for weeks on end because Southern rail's incompetence. After weeks of misery, they have now axed 341 services a day.

When the government stepped in and took over failing East Coast rail, passenger satisfaction levels were the highest on record and punctuality and reliability improved. Plus, it put £640 million back in to the public purse.

Southern rail and their parent company Govia Thameslink are paid to provide a service - but they're not doing it. It's time they were stripped of the franchise.
