The Permanent Way : Or la Voie Anglaise, Paperback

The Permanent Way : Or la Voie Anglaise Paperback


In 1991, before an election they did not expect to win, the Conservative government made a fateful decision to privatize the railways.

As a result, the taxpayer subsidizes rail more lavishly then ever before.

In The Permanent Way, David Hare, working with actors from the Out of Joint Company, tells the intricate, madcap story of a dream gone sour, by gathering together the first-hand accounts of those most intimately involved - from every level of the system.
