Leo should sell off Irish Rail, not strangle it with lack of funding

LEO Varadkar is a valuable cabinet minister, an innovative tourism minister, but a lousy transport minister.
Yesterday's threat to pull funding for trains unless more people use the service is just another reminder that his many interests don't extend as far as transportation.
His lack of interest is bad luck, because our state-owned transport system is in desperate need of the sort of right-wing remedies that Mr Varadkar often prescribes for other parts of the economy.
