A question I have picked up from elsewhere ... could "See it, Say it, Sorted" be extended beyond safety and security to the whole business of running a railway ... imagine Utopia where seeing something and saying about it would have it sorted.

There's plenty of people who are not running railways who think it's that simple.

Fixing things may not always be simple.  The listening bit ought to be.

Does it actually work in its current guise, or is it just a means of the passengers letting off steam?

I've never seen it as anything more than security theatre: "Be scared! There could be dangerous people about! Never fear, BTP are here!"
