Conservative MPs are revolting
over High speed rail 2, with upto 35 threatening to vote against the Government - frankly I remain unconvinced about the merits of HS2 and it would be great if there was a free vote for all MPs. This is a massive decision and nobody can know what is right and wrong - it is all estimates and guesswork. the opportunity cost of not spending he money on other things is also a matter of judgement as to whether they would be more worthwhile, whatever the merits of HS2.
