Anti-HS2 campaigners in Wendover, Buckinghamshire received a surprise visitor at their information stall in the local Saturday market in October.
David Cameron was out and about in Wendover with his children when he found himself face-to-face with campaigners fighting the Government’s plans for the £32 billion high-speed rail line.
A spokesperson for the Wendover HS2 Action Group said:
‘We’re pleased that David Cameron stayed for several minutes to discuss the issues with campaigners. I hope he will reflect on the massive cost of this vanity project and call for the whole project to be re-evaluated by independent experts in the light of the West Coast rail shambles. Our researchers have identified serious problems with the business case which, if not corrected, would mean funds being diverted from the existing rail network to HS2 and ordinary intercity services being lost. It’s time to pause and examine all the options for improving our rail network.’
