Gillan’s Planted Shot at Dave

Welsh Labour MP Wayne David asked what seemed like vicious question at PMQs about the Welsh Secretary Cheryl Gillan:

WD: The Secretary of State for Wales has said that she is prepared to be sacked because of her opposition to Government policy on high-speed rail. Will the Prime Minister take her up on that very kind offer?

PM: I prefer to focus on the fact that in one year as Welsh Secretary, she has secured something that 13 years of Labour Welsh Secretaries never achieved, which is the electrification of the line between Paddington and Cardiff.

On first impression it looks like handbags at Welsh dawn, but when you consider that Guido saw Wayne and Cheryl enjoying a very public drink on the terrace last night, the plot thickens. As the HS2 debate warms up, did Gillan put her Welsh comrade up to remind the Prime Minister of her threat?

    I have been puzzled by this rehashed labour plan , amongst the many that perpetually churned out , at first it was straight forward scotland london link to compete with air travel (ECML has just re jigged london to Edinburgh to 4hrs which is shifting),then it transfomred into Birmingham and Manchester,but with little making to a proper city to europe direct service ,still keeping st pancras as euro port .
    Even if it does come on budget at £17bn (and the route requires a lot of engineering) ,it is expected to carry 30000 passengers per day using trains that will use 4 times the electricity (than travelling at 125mph) to save 38 mins (on first stage ) , one industry analyst has given a figure of £300 peak ret from Birmingham on HS2 in 2020, which clearly is pretty steep for the 30000 people even if half travel off peak ,which can only mean further tax payer subsidy to make fare costs competative , virgin are doing 2nd class peak ret for £149 or £256 first class and a £10.50 off peak special when trains are less full.
    So either by 2020 we will have had 6% annual inflation yoy or be subsidising it , and off peak specials will certainly not be £10.50 , which will not take pressure from the road , electric car will have range by then , so it could be just too expensive , resulting in even more tax payer cost .

    Labour are strangley quiet , but they spent millions on consultants putting it together despite ecnomic projection warnings . The interesting thing is that David Cameron is an graduate economist , and when your protest group starts wanting some answers on the ecnomics , it only seems right that some questions are asked . There are other rumours about the terminus re devolpements and route , but we have not seen any alternatives , WCML was developed recently to do £140mph (but still has difficulties) .

    anyone else seen the alternatives ?? thought not , hence protest group and other groups who might think £17bn on rail network could get more revenue long term jobs if spent differently , or in general economy , have been making themselves heard .

    some else has pointed out what will happen to the cost of london travel on the old line ?? capacity issues can be solved differently and more in favour of lower cost rail travel on this route .
    HS2 will not carry extra frieght nor will freight be travelling at 220mph , so if passenger projections are labour consulltant wonk land , our economist PM will have our second and third largest cities complaining he has given them very expensive rail travel and perhaps even more people complaining he should have been more carefull with tax payers money !

        Well that’s true for mp’s Eng and there are well documented friendships between labour/tory/libdem mp’s.

        But adversely it is also not true when you look at heath/thatcher or the bliar/brown war or the balls/militwit one that is just developing.

          Absolutely agree,if we via dickhead government tossers decide to open the floodgates to change the face of this country by allowing immigrant benefit freeloaders to suck off us the real indigenous people,then we the people can only blame ourselves.
          The indigenous people of this land really need to wake up,forget about my parents voted this way so I will,that is traditional values which tend to be ingrained.
          We the people can if we have the interest and the balls to do it stop the politico’s in their tracks.
          Prior to any elections,make it clear to these tossers that we want to know what they are going to do if elected,no wishy washy crap,an absolute guarantee that they will do what we elected them to do.
          People we are being led by the nose by a bunch of political chancers,who IMHO could’nt give a shit about us,but what I can’t get my head around is as to why given that we have so much information at our fingertips we are falling for this state of affairs.

    I got a reply today from the Charities Commission regarding my complaint about Mike Hobday helping Miliband with PMQs.

    Thank you for your email.

    So long as a charity is engaging in campaigning or political activity solely in order to further or support its charitable purposes, and there is a reasonable likelihood of it being effective, it may carry out campaigning and political activity. The activities it undertakes must be a legitimate and reasonable way for the trustees to further those purposes, and must never be party political.

    A charity can make public comment on social, economic and political issues if these relate to its purpose, or the way in which the charity is able to carry out its work. The Commission would expect a charity to follow our published guidance on such activities CC9 Speaking Out: Guidance on campaigning and political activities by charities.

    The chief executive of Macmillan Cancer Support, Ciarán Devane, explained in a statement on the Guardian’s website how the charity came to be mentioned in Prime Minister’s Questions. You will see that the charity issued a press release on Monday 13 June and briefed all interested MPs.

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”
