The fastest way to fin­ish off this area

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

I HAVE writ­ten hun­dreds of letters to MPs – House of Com­mons, in­di­vid­u­als who may un­der­stand and help.

Help to stop the white fi­nan­cial ele­phant which will stamp out the part of our area, known for its beauty, his­tory, wildlife – for the lux­ury of go­ing to Birm­ing­ham in 20 min­utes.

Flats, houses, fields, roads will be re-ar­ranged. You can­not re­fur­nish Henry VIII’s sta­bles and all the other ‘items’ which will be wiped out. It is a very sad time.

Those who agree, and wish the situation could be changed, have given time, money and tried their very best. In other coun­tries the peo­ple would have cre­ated havoc.

So much re­quires fi­nan­cial sup­port – the NHS, ed­u­ca­tion, nurs­ing, hous­ing, im­mi­gra­tion and the work prob­lem – not for­get­ting the steel en­ergy.

The HS2 is a folly. The work ef­fort changes and elec­tron­ics mean peo­ple can work from home.

All this, and there is sel­dom a let­ter, ask­ing one ques­tion – How can the vic­tims of the HS2 stop it? Who is the Politi­cian who will lis­ten, un­der­stand and make peace with the threat to ‘fin­ish off ’ this area?
