George Osborne wants the private sector to build a Japanese-style 360mph “maglev”
railway. “There are plenty of links I can think of – a link between Liverpool and Manchester, or Glasgow and Edinburgh, or London and its airports – which would bring huge benefits to Britain.” He plans to make it viable by taxing all other forms of transport to the point of bankruptcy.
George is in Japan and will ride the magnetic levitation train tomorrow. Not the first time he will have got high on a long line methinks.
