Will HS2 Go With Justine Greening And Theresa Villiers?
I certainly hope so. They don't approve of airyplanes - choochoos are more their (19th century) idea of transport. Turn Heath Row into West London Regional Airport and develop Manston into South East Hub Airport. The Ramgate- Ashford link to the HS1 trainline could be upgraded. Then spend the £32 billion budgeted for HS2 on upgrading the intercity and local rail network in order to boost the economy outside of the South East.
