  1. I see Jeremy Corbyn has today said that hs2 should go north from Birmingham and not south to London but that it is too late to stop phase1(Birmingham Post)
    Is he not aware that the bill for phase 1 is still going through parliament and that it is his responsibility to drop his party’s support and to oppose it!!
