Former Shell exec Mark Carne in firing line again

The Guardian newspaper has published an article about the rail travel fiasco in the UK at Christmas.

Network Rail bosses could face grilling over Christmas chaos


Senior executives at Network Rail are likely to be summoned to Westminster to explain the engineering overruns that caused chaos for Christmas travellers over the weekend.

Mark Carne (above right), the chief executive of Network Rail, is once again in the firing line. He has been on holiday over the Christmas period leaving the rail travelling public to suffer from his incompetence, for which he is to receive a bonus of up to £135,000.

What a shame those that appointed this flawed former Shell executive never heeded the alarm bells we set ringing:

Mark Carne, Network Rail chief, will not take bonus


Mark Carne, Network Rail chief executive, says he will not take his bonus – and reveals he drove back from holiday as it is “easier”

It follows chaos on Boxing Day and Saturday after over-running engineering works at King’s Cross, with tens of thousands of passengers stranded and badly delayed.

“I’ve decided that I’m accountable for the performance of the railway and in my view the performance over the Christmas and New Year period was not acceptable and I’ve decided that I should not take the bonus for this year,” he said.


Seems Mark will have to scrape by on his £675,000 salary (over $1 million USD). and its sister non-profit websites,,,,,, and are owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia feature.
