Who wants more austerity, to pay for HS2?

with one comment

‘£56 billion’ spent on HS2 would mean ‘£56 billion’ not spent on fixing Britain’s collapsing public services, dilapidated roads, and social housing stock.

World Bank, health expenditure as percentage of GDP, France / Germany / UK / USA

Yet there are still some people who think building HS2 is a good idea.

  1. 1995 – 2014 = 13 years of Labour government and only 6 years of Conservative government. Most of it wasn’t spent in austerity but in the Blair/Brown boom and bust. So….er….why no increase in health expenditure?
