HS2 opponents have two choices
I ATTENDED the beauty parade of candidates in the forthcoming general election held in St Peter and St Paul church in Great Missenden on April 24.
In summary: Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the Conservatives will proceed with HS2.
The Greens and UKIP would abandon HS2.
The three candidates from the parties committed to HS2 are all personally opposed to the project and would work tirelessly from within their parties to persuade the cabinet of the folly of the project.
However, we have seen that working against HS2 from within the party for the whole of the last parliament has been a singular failure for the Conservative candidate.
There were no reasons put forward by the candidates to lead me to believe that working from within will enable any of the candidates from the three main parties to influence a change in direction.
