HS2 folly is part of European dream
In response to the front page of the Advertiser, January 29 YOUR headline last week ‘Let voters decide on the fate of HS2’, although being an excellent idea, is unlikely to ever happen.
It is a political railway originally conceived by Jacques Delors in 1993, while president of the EU, as the trans-European network (TEN-T) to link all corners of the European empire.
No private investor would ever invest in this totally unviable project. The money would be much better spent improving our road network.
If you want a vote on HS2, the only party opposed to it is UKIP, who see it for what it is.
