  1. As Sir James Goldsmith said when a band wagon is forming it is time to jump off. Why does redevelopment of Darlington station have to be related to HS2. Darlington and the near area has been deserted by not developing the process industries after rise of Middle East chemicals. Get a manufacturing and process plan with some substance first.

  2. Cooking the books not balancing the books. Can anyone understand the projections and how debt is reducable with £200B needed for HS2 and must be NHS2 and SH2.

    The budget provided weasel words and very sketchy words and phases for infrastructure. What is planned. Seems little is financed.

    NHS2 has more support than HS2.

    Hunt changes focus on A&E process times as GPs can not cope with the population that demands more than the capacity in the GPs. Hammond changes focus to more the balancing date beyond the predicted and projected periods.

    Not Euston we have a problem but Europe has a vast problem and the UK is not sure of direction and projects that are affordable.

  3. I think I’m living in a parallel universe.
    The media is banging on about the absurd NI increase yet nothing on 56bn on hs2 not to mention all the local spend required to access it
