Just Received this Email from Virgin Trains....

Jump to last reply

What do you who live in GB think of this? Will this impact my Virgin train tickets from London to Windemere in September??


Dear Jane

It is not all over in the battle to make the Government see sense and reconsider the decision to award the West Coast Mainline franchise to FirstGroup.

An e-petition, set up completely independent of Virgin by a member of the public, is calling for the government to reconsider the decision.

Over 20,000 people have already signed the e-petition. Once we get 100,000 signatures from UK citizens the issue may be debated in the House of Commons. We urge you to sign the e-petition and let the Government know how passionately we all feel about keeping the West Coast Mainline as a Virgin Trains franchise.

The final decision has not been signed off and we want as much support as possible to force the Government to reassess this ill-judged decision. August 28th is the provisional date for the signing of the contract for the next franchise, so do sign the e-petition as soon as possible.


Sign the e-petition
