“We might as well knock down Birmingham and build it twenty minutes closer to London, and do it for less than £50bn.”

    The British public says:

    Demolishing Birmingham sounds like a very good idea. Rebuilding it somewhere else, doesn’t.

      That’s a very good idea – it would be under the North Sea, and pretty close to the wreck of the USS Richard Montgomery, too.

    It is statements like this from so called economists or politicians (statesmen to them), that make us wonder if our education system is a major barrier to achieving wisdom.

    A question for you. As the HS2 is all part of the EU’s Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) Policy, thus allowing foreigners to dictate what we must have on our land-whether we like it or not, or can afford it or not-(How many £trillions are we in debt already?) What about the rest of what is in TEN-T? Do we pay to give sovereignty over our skies for the EU’s Single European Sky? (Air Traffic Control) And sadly, do we also give Sovereignty(authority) over our Ports and Seas (12 mile limit) so that EU ships can come and Go as they please? Hmmmmph! There’s a thought, will our ships be classed as EU Ships too?

    Trust a politician to steal a good line. Question is, from whom was the Mock The Week line by Gary Delaney lifted?

    Ah! Plagiarism …..

The Prime Minister feels the pressure:

“I have to say that after the events I have been facing over the last few days, assassination would be a welcome release.”



It was only a tiny tiny collision.
