It is our money that is going to pay for HS2. If we had a choice would you pay for it?
For the estimated £200billion we could employ 1,600,000 nurses for 5 years (currently we employ 315,000). We could increase our police force with an extra 1,300,000 policemen for 5 years at a starting salary of £30,000.
So where is the sense of spending all that money on something that no-one will be able to afford to travel on. (unless you are a MP)
£200billion when written like this, many people do not realise what a huge amount of money it represents. As it is our money they are planning to spend, I think we should say "NO" we do not want to spend our money on this huge white elephant.
