This won't necessarily make any difference to what has happened, but the National Audit Office has validated the fact that Network Rail failed in their duty to consider the wider social impact of the selling of the Arches to the private sector. The report highlights that tenant concerns were well founded, and that initiatives to support the tenants are not legally binding. Railway arches sold off with no thought for tenants, says watchdog It's good that the process has been put under scrutiny but sadly only serves to highlight that any scrap of 'kindness' or consideration for communities is something that big business has no longer any real and true time for when it comes to their own financial 'woes'. What gets me is that these businesses are run by 'people'. People who forget what it is like to be human when faced by bigger picture business problems. This is a big problem, and something that many good people are possibly unwillingly complicit in every day (but that's another conversation).
