This is the first of two new videos from Camden, questioning the need for HS2 especially given other things which may be cut due to austerity.
Historically, austerity measures have not been shown to work. To take away the Independent Living Fund which is the lifeline for people with various disabilities, seems inhuman given the willingness to spend on HS2. The government say that the HS2 has a separate budget, and that the budget for the existing railways is also ring fenced. Does anyone really believe that?
