High Speed 2, or HS2, is the current government’s grandiose scheme to build a high speed train line from London to Birmingham, and later beyond.
Suffice to say, here at StopTheDebt we are resolutely against the plans. There is no viable business case for the plans, and the cost is now predicted to be anything up to £80 Bn. There is no money!
The sooner the plans are cancelled the better. The scheme was dreamed up in the dying days of the most profligate government this country has seen in decades, under the dire Gordon Brown. The Conservative government have adopted the plans wholesale. No wonder traditional conservatives are deserting in droves.
We lend our full support to the anti-HS2 group. Find out more at Stop HS2.
