    The RMT has reacted angrily to the breakdown of talks between themselves and Southern Rail.

    General Secretary Mick Cash said Southern had a "pig-headed attitude" which has "wrecked" the talks. 

    Quote Message: Our negotiating team is furious at the way this union and its members have been treated.
    Quote Message: This is dire news not just for staff but for passengers who rightly demand a safe, reliable and accessible service. I will now take a full report back to the unions executive." from Mick Cash General Secretary of the RMT

  9. Southern talks: 'We’re saddened it’s ended so prematurely.

    Talks between Southern and the RMT union have ended without agreement, according to Acas. 

    Southern rail
    Quote Message: We came to today’s meeting hopeful we could find a way forward to end the RMT’s dispute and we’re saddened it’s ended so prematurely. The travelling public will find the union’s obstinate refusal to engage in meaningful and constructive talks disappointing, disheartening and increasingly destructive.
    Quote Message: Over the past year the RMT has had 28 days of strikes on this one issue, we’ve seen in excess 20,000 trains cancelled as a result, thousands of journeys disrupted, people’s work and family lives badly impacted and the cost to the regional economy is in excess of £300m.
    Quote Message: Conductors in the RMT union transferred to the new customer service role (On-Board Supervisor) from the beginning of last month and are now operating effectively in that role. Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Rail - the highest industry authority in the land - also says that drivers in sole control of the train is a safe method of operation.
    Quote Message: So the conclusion that most reasonable people will reach is that the RMT is seeking to hang on to its power to cancel trains. We’ve fully implemented our modernisation programme with the driver opening and closing the doors and a second person focused on customer service on our trains. Everyone is sick and tired of the RMT’s strikes and their pointless and intransigent stance needs to stop, and stop now. from Nick Brown Chief Operating Officer of GTR, Southern’s parent company

  14. Afghan interpreter Javed Hotak 'let down' by UK government

    An Afghan who says he was an interpreter with British forces says the government has committed a great injustice by not granting him asylum.

    Javed Hotak said he was sent death threats by the Taliban and feared for his life if the Home Office sent him back to Afghanistan.

    He has been living illegally in Birmingham while he makes a third claim to stay.

    The Home Office said all asylum cases were considered on individual merits.

    Mr Hotak's first claim for asylum was rejected by the Home Office in 2011 after he arrived in the UK - via the Jungle in Calais - in a lorry two years earlier.
