HS2 news

It appears that Labour may be looking to delay the passage of the phase one bill for HS2 through parliament, so they can scrap it if they come into power at the next election.

Politically, there are several things to say about this:
  1. Labour should have the courage of their convictions, and either come out in favour or against the project.
  2. Many northern - Labour - councils want HS2, which may explain the two-faced approach by the opposition front bench.
  3. Any such delays means the project will cost more.
In other news, the Crossrail project is halfway complete, and on budget.
