High Speed Train To Nowhere.

Can it really be true that anyone is seriously considering building a high speed rail link between London and The North at the cost of twenty seven billion pounds? We are told that the journey time between London and Manchester could be reduced from two hours and ten minutes to one hour and ten. Amazing! Now this is what I think politicians should do. Take a stroll around Tower Hamlets, hop on the slow speed train to Manchester, take a look round Moss Side and have a long hard think. Twenty seven billion quid, could it be put to better use?

Typical comments from the ego centric London mind!

As usual the Londoner thinks that our so called capital is the centre of the universe and everywhere else is of no importance and does not deserve investment. The high speed link to London is an economic and social necessity to London if only to enable us northerners to get on the Eurostar out of the place.
