Network Rail unMcNultied for the Olympics

Remember that plan to McNulty Britain's trains? Some fares will go up and wages will be cut.

But miracles! If it's the Olympics then Network Rail can unMcNulty, lay on more trains, trains will be longer and they will run later. It will provide a dedicated website and call centre and suspend engineering work and Olympic spectators will get 'bargain basement' rail tickets which can be used flexibly if events overrun!

A Network Rail spokesman said: "In partnership with the operators we're laying on hundreds more trains much later than usual, into the early hours to get people home. We want them well used and full so there will be great ticket deals to be had."

So if Network Rail can unMcNulty for the Olympics why not for the rest of the time?
