Greater Anglia would be better off simply reporting the days that their trains run with a full complement of carriages and run to within 5 minutes of their timetable. That has happened about twice in the past year. They are singly responsible for massive impacts to the economic recovery and to daily misery of thousands of commuters. The Greater Anglia line is a net contributor to the treasury in that it makes more money than it has spent on it. We subsidize the rest of the rail network in the UK and we get this dross on a regular basis. Our local politicians have made plenty of noise, but no improvement has occurred.

Saying they're singly responsible isn't really true, it's the responsibility of Network Rail to have the signals working correctly. That's not saying Greater Anglia doesn't have faults, but we can't blame them for things that they don't have control over.
