No2HS2: John Maynard Keynes

"Two pyramids, two masses for the dead, are twice as good as one; but not so two railways from London to York. "
The General Theory on Emploment, Interest and Money, 1935 Book 3, Chapter 10, Section 6, p. 131

And also two railways to Birmingham from London. H2S stinks. £32 billion would be better spent digging holes, burying wine bottles filled with £50 notes and filling them in again with wind turbine scrap and then auctioning off the commercial exploitation rights of the holes to the highest bidder.
