Politi­cians’ typ­i­cal re­sponse to HS2

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

I HAVE just read your front page ar­ti­cle (March 30) about the lack of sup­port from the lo­cal MPs elected to rep­re­sent this bor­ough at the third read­ing of the HS2 Phase 1 Hy­brid Bill.

This should not have sur­prised any of the lo­cal res­i­dents when you re­alise that none of them will be di­rectly af­fected by the HS2.

Words are cheap, es­pe­cially when spo­ken by politi­cians.

Ac­tions re­quire some com­mit­ment to be shown by those who have said to be against HS2.

In­stead, what hap­pened? Noth­ing. Nick Hurd was out of the coun­try and Boris John­son has done noth­ing for Uxbridge since he was elected.

I hope that the res­i­dents re­mem­ber all of their out­spo­ken ob­jec­tions and their ac­tions against HS2 when it comes to keep­ing them as MPs, earn­ing a salary which none of the res­i­dents could earn, ex­cept the leader of the coun­cil, who has also said to be against HS2. But he is an­other politi­cian. KEITH REYNOLDS
