Mick Cash guest speaker at New Year Dinner New Year Dinner on January 27th at the Cricketers, Horsell – a convivial evening was enjoyed with Mick Cash, general secretary of the RMT, who is fighting the Tory assault on workers’ rights and to protect safety on the railways for passengers. Mick is flanked by Mohammed Sakhawat Khan, Labour candidate for Woking North in the Surrey County Council elections in May, and Councillor Tahir Aziz. It has emerged that the National Audit Office is investigating alleged malpractice by Govia Thameslink, the umbrella company owning Southern Rail. Also Southern Rail itself could now be temporarily nationalised to deal with the appalling level of service, and the government is looking at alternative ways to award franchises as they come up for renewal as the present system is delivering poor service standards. Let’s hope they are all nationalised.
