How Royal Assent was reported on BBC Three Counties, with Penny Gaines
When Phase 1 of HS2 got Royal Assent, there as lots of media coverage. This is just one of those pieces, from Radio 5 Live.
As HS2 was just about the get Royal Assent, oddly enough no-one from the DfT or HS2 Ltd was willing to come on to BBC London was willing to come on and say how great it’ll be!
It wasn’t all bad, that just meant Keri Brennan from Hillingdon Against HS2 had a bit more time. This is by no means the first time this has happened, and indeed it happened later the same day, as Fraser Pithie had been lined up to do a head-to-head on BBC Coventry & Warwickshire (or was it BBC WM?), but as we’d predicted in the Stop HS2 virtual office, backed out when told he’d be up against Joe Rukin.
