HS2 op­po­nents have two choices

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

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.
