HS2 Trainspotting

HS2 Trainspotting

Andy Burnham, the bookmakers’ favourite to be the next Labour leader, has told party members in Camden that he has doubts about the controversial HS2 rail plan (wrote Richard Osley).

[Andy Burnham tells Camden audience: ‘Don’t tweet it, but I have doubts about HS2’, Camden New Journal, 10 Jul 2015]

He said [at a question-and-answer session at Netley Primary School] that he was worried that “vested interests”, rather than public support, was driving the £50billion project.

[…] Labour branch secretary Dorothea Hackman added: “We thought it might be about speed or capacity but it’s about neither of those things. It’s about creating 17 football fields of flattened area around Euston station for international developers to come in and make a profit.”
