GOVERN­MENT pol­icy re­mains baf­fling. Why en­trust build­ing Hink­ley power sta­tion (which, rightly or wrongly, most peo­ple be­lieve is nec­es­sary) to for­eign pow­ers we have no com­pelling rea­son to trust be­cause the State ‘can’t af­ford’ to build it, while propos­ing to press ahead, for three times as much public money, with HS2, which prac­ti­cally no one be­lieves will ever be more than a gra­tu­itously dis­rup­tive waste of time?

It is surely time to recog­nise that mass move­ment, in a vastly over­pop­u­lated world, is un­de­sir­able and of­fi­cial ob­ses­sion with en­cour­ag­ing it is un­ten­able. Kit Rae-scott, Devon
