Remember when Corbyn was mocked for floating women-only carriages?

In 2015, as the Labour leadership race entered its final stages, Jeremy Corbyn was vilified and mocked for floating the idea of women-only train carriages. It was never more than an idea, but an Establishment desperate to prevent his surge in the contest seemed to decide that it was the most ridiculous notion ever.

The BBC has reported that the number of sexual offences against women on trains has more than doubled in the past five years:

This grim statistic shows Corbyn once again on the right side of an issue – showing foresight, insight and the courage to raise issues others duck or simply ridicule.

Of course, for women-only carriages to work, just like any aspect of in-train safety, requires guards on trains – so of course the Tories are pushing in the other direction.
