A remarrkable admission from Chris Grayling
During a disastrous appearance on yesterday’s BBC tv Marr show, transport secretary Christopher Grayling MP was questioned about airport capacity, and the cost of HS2.
[…Andrew Marr, asking about the cost of HS2:] My real question is, “Is this a blank cheque? Is there a limit?”… Is there a moment when you say, “I know it’s a big prestige project… I know there are a lot of egos are at stake here, but this is now too expensive, and it cannot cost… – and you actually pull the plug”?
[Christopher Grayling:] No, there isn’t.
