£50 billion HS2 not a “big ticket” issue

leave a comment »

Asked by the Daily Telegraph whether he still supported HS2 despite defecting to Ukip, Mark Reckless said: “I’m reflecting on that. My speech is obviously on the record … I’m just reflecting and not adding anything to what I’ve said on the record on the issue.”


Told about the comments, [Nigel] Farage admitted the pair held “different” views on HS2 but said he was “perfectly happy” with disagreement within the party providing there was consensus on the “big ticket issues” like the European Union and immigration.

'Mark Reckless: a big HS2 benefit for the Medway Towns is Ebbsfleet to Birmingham Airport 55 minutes' (does that include the people mover from Bickenhill?)
