6/1 railways renationalised

WITH JEREMY CORBYN reportedly about to reveal that Labour will seek to renationalise the railways, bookmakers William Hill are offering odds of 16/1 that all lines will be renationalised before 2030.

'2029 is the date when the last franchise - C2C - is due to end, and Labour would preusmably plan to buy all the lines back when their franchises expire' said Hill's spokesman, Graham Sharpe, 'It is up to punters to decide whether to steam into the odds on offer'
