Chris Guiton (M Star September 4) makes an increasingly familiar point about the lack of a Labour position in relation to the railways.
Labour seems unable to grasp that the renationalisation of the trains is increasingly finding favour among voters and, were the party to adopt it as policy, may well win votes come 2015.
Sadly their inability to take the initiative on the railways is echoed elsewhere.
They have a lead in the polls yet have it not through their offering popular radical alternatives to the coalition, but because the coalition continues to lurch from one crisis to another - effectively doing Labour's job for them.
The boos ringing out in the Olympic Stadium as George Osborne was introduced as the medal presenter were eloquent testimony to the contempt with which this government is held.
It should be an easy job for a competent opposition to seize the political initiative, but one could be forgiven for thinking that Ed Miliband is still on holiday.
