    More excuses for insane and utterly predictable budget overuns.
    Unexpected soft ground and the absolute fucking classic of all time..

    "the further additional costs of it being designed to run at even higher speeds than other comparable rail projects”.

    How did he keep his face straight with that one?

    HS2 'could go £30bn over budget'

    Where did you get "soft ground" from?
    You really do just make up your own incorrect interpretation of things.

    You do it all the time.

    It says poor ground conditions..I'll take that as too soft rather than too hard for HS rail.

    No one wants it.

    Dead duck, anywhere outside of London and the commuter belt isnt dense enough to make rail appealing.

    I cant believe stopping it short is even on the table.
    That completely destroys the entire reason the thing was sold to us in the first place.
    The attention has been slowly moving on to 'freeing up space'.

    Its going to end up normal speed..stopping at the edge of London and not going past Birmingham.

    Holy fuck ..considering not taking it to central London...what a fucking joke, thats 90% of its appeal, a high speed train bang in the middle of our capital city.

    Tory vanity project.

    Beeching was a Tory too - and if we'd continued to have all of the lines he'd taken out then we'd have a better local transport system more in line with environmental targets.

    Locals kicked up a massive fuss, but cars = win for those days.

    I'm guessing that HS2 probably won't stop there if they only have 46 passengers a year?

    I'm guessing half of them got off at the wrong stop.

    You vote and support it.

    What gives you the impression they won't do the same with all that lovely money we get back from the EU?

    One thing is for sure, Boris will be very comfortable when he stands down.
