‘Where are our MPs?’
That’s the cry from Eastbourne Green Party as conductors with Southern Railway start a five day walkout in the ongoing row over driver-only trains.
Andrew Durling, the spokesman for the Party in the town has taken to social media calling for Eastbourne MP Caroline Ansell and Pevensey MP Huw Merriman to put pressure on the Government to sack the managers at Southern.
Mr Durling wants to see the network run by the Department for Transport.
Caroline Ansell's office say while it is unlikely Caroline will respond to a tweet, she has spoken to the Rail Minister about the situation.
We are yet to hear back from Huw Merriman.
