Politicians’ typical response to HS2
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
