LETTER: Referendum on trains dispute

I've had a great idea for solving the current rail dispute, which is clearly being run by the Government.

They should use their proven method of solving knotty problems and hold a referendum. This would ask passengers whether they think that there should be at least two rail staff on every train.

They could then act on the result, which would be decided by a simple majority of course, in the comforting knowledge that they are implementing the will of the people.

Even if this means employing more railway guards, I’m sure that it would prove much less expensive and much less controversial than other attempts to implement the will of the people.
