There is a political driver to the rail service and safety question which is disturbing from a trust perspective. There is a natural conflict of interest between the Treasury, the DTI and the MOT which led to the current structure and a political impasse which still exists. The political wrangle has nothing to offer customers and it makes no sense for customers to trust a service where policy is driven by concerns other than theirs.
