How do you feel about that ? Why can't our own government run our transport service, why do they feel the need to allow Arriva to be purchased by Deutsche Bahn, that is owned by the German government 100%. Kind of makes a mockery out of privatisation.
The European Union gave German transport company Deutsche Bahn DBN.UL approval to buy British bus operator Arriva (ARI.L) on Wednesday on condition that Deutsche Bahn sell Arriva's German business.
Deutsche Bahn, Europe's biggest transport group by revenues, unveiled the proposed acquisition in April. It will make it Europe's No. 1 passenger carrier and may lead to a wave of transport sector consolidation.
