Labour MP Calls For Gender Segregation on Trains To Create ‘Safe Spaces’

Labour MP and chief Corbynista cheer-leader Chris Williamson (pictured above) has called for the introduction of ‘female only’ train carriages as a way of creating ‘safe spaces’ on the transport network to reduce the risk of sexual assault. Mr. Williamson said:-

‘It was pooh-poohed when he (Corbyn) first suggested it but the statistics seem to indicate there is some merit in examining that. Complemented with having more guards on trains, it would be a way of combating these attacks, which we have seen a worrying increase in the past few years.

‘I’m not saying it has to happen, but it may create a safe space (for women)’.

However, the chief of the Transport Salaried Staff Association (TSSA), Manuel Cortes, told The Telegraph that more staff not safe spaces were the answer:-

“Our railways have more passengers than ever before but since privatisation, station staff across Britain have been culled and we are now seeing companies like Southern trying to get rid of carriage guards.

“Our entire network is now woefully understaffed, making travelling more stressful and, sadly, more dangerous for passengers.

“Some stations are no longer staffed at all. CCTVs may be in place but they need sufficient trained monitoring staff to keep carriages and stations properly scrutinised. And they need to be backed up by a full complement of British Transport Police (BTP) Community Support Officers and Officers.

“But monitoring staff numbers have been cut to the bone and we have long warned of the dire consequences and increase in risk to passengers.”
