HS 2 predicted costs now stand at £81 billion. Whilst this latest figure my be an exaggeration, the eventual cost is not known but will certainly be many tens of billions of pounds.
FOR :- will make travelling between major cities quicker for the privallaged few who happen to live close enough to the resited stations. This is assuming that the train isn't late.
AGAINST :- HS2 is bad for the country on so many different levels, from the sheer waste of money and increased debt, through to environmental disasters, think of all the wrongs in the country today, and just think what £81,000 million would do to put many of these things right.
A fraction of the £81,000 million would be better spent on existing infrastructure, improving safety reducing deaths on railways, just £30 million would build a hospital
The terrible disturbance to so many peoples lives.....
The destruction or major disruption to ancient woodlands, forests, areas of beauty, habitats, rivers....
etc etc etc
To the Government, We are ordinary but intelligent folk, who can see no benefit whatsoever to the masses, and require that you to stop this nonsense now, before any further monies are wasted on HS2. Please please listen to the people who elected you
