    Meanwhile, H2S carries on regardless.........
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    I, along with everyone within a 20-mile radius, was praying yesterday that when they said "£XXBn of upgrades cancelled", it meant HS2 was dead.

    It's just a hill. Get over it.

    The North loses out.
    So far the government have cost jobs in the UK onshore wind industry, about to cost more in the rail industry. Hmmm what is next.

    Anything outside London is fair game.

    I did read that the upgrades to existing, Victoria infrastructure are bloody expensive, even compared to 15 minutes less watching the world fly by as you head north

    What the tories have done, is kept the budget the same BUT cut the number of projects, as many have been priced incorrectly and if we carried on, the budget would be out of control - if this is correct, whats wrong with that?

    Meanwhile the great white elephant HS2, carries on..... but for how long?
