Desperately seeking woo scam

with one comment

High Speed Two is ‘shovel ready and, according to Network Rail, the only project that can realistically deliver desperately needed extra capacity across the UK’s rail network’, proclaimed HS2 Ltd’s twitter on 29 January.

twitter, @HS2ltd, 'HS2 is shovel ready and, according to Network Rail, the only project that can realistically deliver desperately needed extra capacity across the UK’s rail network.'

‘Desperately needed’, presumably, means something like ‘urgently needed’. But the first stretch of HS2 is not expected to open before about 2030.

Between two cities which already have two motorways, and two intercity railways, connecting them.

twitter, @belebenso, 'Two motorways to London.  4 fast trains to London each hour, across 2 railways.  And the infrastructure the West Midlands most 'desperately needs' is...  another railway to London'

  1. There are plenty of schemes that don’t need shovels, like adding extra carriages.
