  1. Just watched mp for cleethorpes saying his constituents aren’t affected by hs2!

    • Conservative MP Martin Vickers is entitled to his opinion but he could be wrong. If HS2 succeeds in drawing investment to business parks near the small number of proposed stations than it is likely to be largely at the expense of other areas in the North. Perhaps areas like Cleethorpes.

      The MP for Greater Grimsby Austin Mitchell gets this , so does David Davis in East Yorkshire.
