  1. Will May change poor practices over.past 7 years for too expensive rail routes and too much propaganda. Return of over committing to debt mountain. Can May get green route with a new green paper. Time to redefine Priorities

  2. Is there a hope for strength of realism and change HS2 to a Milton Keynes Hub with East West and High Speed UK. This will serves freight logistics for MK with more connections for MK than now exceeding the HS2 Phase 1 narrow more expensive current proposition.

    Theresa May has said she is to introduce a “Great Repeal Bill” in the next Queen’s Speech which will overturn the act which took the UK into the EU.

    It will remove the European Communities Act from the statute book and end the supremacy of EU law.

    The government will also enshrine all existing EU law into British law and anything deemed unnecessary will be abolished later.

    It comes ahead of the Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham later.

    The repeal of the 1972 Act will not take effect until Britain leaves the EU under the process for quitting the bloc known as Article 50.
