Protectionism rife across EU

In London waiting for a bus I was pleasantly surprised to see two double-deckers, one with ‘Man­aged by RATP’ (Transport for Paris) and the other by Deutsche Bank.

How fairplay to allow EU firms to run parts of the UK public transport system – but how likely are you to see a bus in Paris or Frankfurt run by Transport for London?

Protectionism is rife in the EU despite the idea it is to promote across the board competition and not just when it suits countries flying the EU flag.
