GBR will also be the unified brand for Britain's rail services - seeing the end to separate brands and being replaced with the double arrows. Government say they may introduce revised variants of the GBR branding for regions, Scotland and Wales.

Private companies will still be contracted to operate trains - thus not being nationalisation - but will have to conform to stricter conditions and of course the GBR brand.

Should bring a report out for the GBB (Great British Buses), so the profits don’t go into hands of foreign owners lining there bus infrastructures in there own countries using UK money

I have heard it called "Great British Railspin", which reading through it, seem to be a pretty good assessment

I hope that the implementation is better than the White Paper.
