Why OH WHY did Blighty privatise EVERYTHING?

Beardy Co got a special dispensation to run a monopoly on the west coast as I recall, on the promise of huge amounts of funding which was immediately swallowed up by the massive backlog of basic maintenance and so little was seen except for rather swish trains.

Speaking of which, some people may not remember quite how crap trains were before privatisation, but they were, crap.
