Great news for the UK’s creaking rail system 👍

An announcement on the rail project linking London to Birmingham and Manchester and Leeds is expected by the Prime Minister on Tuesday.
While the whole line will be built, the government will seek a review of the second phase covering the North.

Nationalising rail franchises?

Squandering billons on badly planned and questionable infrastructure projects?

Mansion taxes and pension raids in the pipeline.

The Conservative party and their supporters are close to embracing socialism.

So the cost is what? £104Bn at present? I imagine it will likely have doubled by the time they finally build this giant phallus of a project.
And people called buy two aircraft carriers a spectacular white elephant.. hell we could have bought a few fleets for the price of this nonsense.
This is not but squalid vote grubbing and an attempt at a vain glorious project by the government.
