Definitely not a hypocrite or a Nimby

The arguments in favour of HS2’s Wigan spur — the location of a goods yard and 10 minutes off the journey to Glasgow — do not stack up to £1 billion, according to Warrington South Conservative MP David Mowat, who most definitely isn’t a Nimby.

Definitely Not a Nimby.

NaN.

Not a Nimby, definitely and for sure

typeof (hypocrisy) = NaN

So, to be, er, clear:

1. Anyone in the Midlands (whether they live near the HS2 route, or not), who says “20 minutes off the journey from London to Birmingham is not worth £20,000,000,000”, is a Nimby.

2. But anyone in the North (who happens to be MP for part of Warrington), who says “10 minutes off the journey to Glasgow is not worth £1 billion”, is definitely not a Nimby.
