Ellie versus the Elephant

twitter, @elliegoulding, 'HS2 is a most ridiculous idea'

According to recording artist Ellie Goulding, the HS2 railway would shave virtually nothing off commuting time.

Which, of course, is absolutely correct. The vast majority of commuting into London Euston is from Milton Keynes, and points south thereof. Building HS2 would not make a Hemel commuter train go even one mile per hour faster.

Mass commuting from Manchester or Birmingham to London is not practical or affordable, with or without HS2.
