Government madmen are going off the rails
THE cost of the high speed rail link is set to double and will probably end up costing in the region of £200 billion.
And you thought we were skint. Hospitals are desperate for equipment and staff, schools are falling apart, our roads are crumbling and small businesses are going to the wall.
So you have to wonder about the mental state of a Government which decides to spend that huge sum of money on getting from London to Birmingham 30 minutes faster.
It’s the arrogance of politicians that they feel the need to leave some lasting expensive legacy for future generations to remember them by.
The HS2 link might just be the Tories’ Millennium Dome.
