  1. Euston will take circa 20 years to create circa 11 platforms.
    The sequence of the development of HS2 is out of synchronisim.
    Revenue generation in the first 50 years with construction will not return the capital costs.
    Old Oak Common with most HS2 trains stopping will not cope with the demands being made on the location and area.

    The railway requirements do not fit into the unreal property and space available contraints.

    HS2 has become the UK’s Ebola theme a dreaded situation whilst people find their daily journeys by road and rail are no longer pleasant. No one can stop this Cameron and Osborne dictact in 2014. Hopefully the election in May 2015 can bring a change in Government to stop this developing mistaken priority and the UK or the England and Wales part of what was the UK can have new realistic goals with some leadership relating to reverse the misguided priorities Westminster is currently pursuing. What a chilling realisation the nation is off the rails on the big issues currently as politicians have shown their inability to guide the UK population from the dysfunctional debt and socially dangerous mountains mountains in the past decade. Time for a leadership focussed on corrrective actions not grand secondary schemes.
