I thought I would never see the day when I would agree with a politician on anything, but the letter from Godfrey Bloom MEP hit the nail on the head. The phrase white elephant sums up HS2. His comments on who benefits is also on the money. South Yorkshire won’t get a look-in. As always London and their cronies will get the cream.

The only thing South Yorkshire and the rest of Britain will inherit is paying off the interest on the billions it’s going to cost thanks to Hinge and Bracket at number 10. What happened to austerity? Taxpayers haven’t got over being ripped off over the bank bail outs, yet number 10 are hellbent on putting a millstone round their necks for the next millennium and beyond.

Just like PPI, you didn’t ask for it, you don’t want it and you don’t need it.

Upgrade is the cheaper option.
