Quote of the Day

Deleted from Treasury Minister Andrea Leadsom’s website…

“My fight against HS2 goes on. Until there is a dramatic rethink about HS2, I will continue to fight for generous compensation and effective mitigation to help those substantially affected by HS2 move on with their lives.”

      Note – HS2 is a misnomer – the damn liars are actually planning to run the train at LOW SPEED – as can be seen from this article –

      http://johnredwoodsdiary.com/2014/04/08/taking-the-speed-out-of-high-speed-ii/

      I suggest everyone refers to the project as LOW SPEED 2 / LS2 to highlight the dishonesty and stupidity of the whole rotten, EU-driven idea.

      but that’s me (the tax-payer)

      or does she mean that having accepted that i (the tax-payer) am to be bilked once i should be bilked twice so that she can create a new spongers’ interest group?

        got it!

        there are plenty of farmers in the south northamptonshire constituency – and ms leadweight is fathoming that we should pay them the development land value for housing rather than the (already grossly inflated) aggie land price for ‘their’ land

        we couldn’t possibly expect them to stand on their own three feet – could we?

    HS2 is a great idea, hope they speed up construction. Public transport is awful and something needs to be done to upgrade it.
    The track will run about 300m from my house so am slightly affected by it but still a supporter.

      If you’re in any doubt about vanity projects take a look at London, it is one big building site,never finished . The cross rail seems to have been under construction for as long as anyone can remember,relentlessly bulldozing it’s way through London’s history causing congestion on a grand scale just so some twat can have an extra half hour in bed before embarking upon the back breaking task of moving imaginary money around the world from Canary Wharf.
      This grand project is scheduled to be finished by 2020, and already there is talk of a North /South version even before a train has run on the current one!

      Troll alert!! – This posting cannot be true!
      The NW line is the most lightly utilised of all main lines, and NO-ONE who lives close to the line will benefit from it – because it is ‘High Speed’ that means no stops between London and Birmingham, so no matter how close the train runs to your house, unless you live in London or Birmingham that will be of no value to you at all.

    Whilst I would like the UK – which invented trains, and used to make money exporting them – to have the world’s best train system with Shinkansens going everywhere, i can’t see the point in this project other than to extend London’s commuter belt out to the West Midlands, and thus extend the housing bubble and perpetuate overcentralisation.

    The money for this would be better spent dragging the once economically significant north back up to significance, as well as other shitholes, like south wales and the scottish central belt, by creating freetrade corporationtaxfree zones for homegrown companies and make sure they’ve got all the infrastructure they need to function.

    After you clear the country’s debts, you need to get the coubtry to make money, not chuck bungs to foreign companies on giant elephantine emgineering projects.

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
