No One Left To Convince

The HS2AA team have just returned from 3 days at the Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham.  Our stand in the Freedom Zone saw a steady stream of activists, party members, councillors and MPs.  The views were pretty unanimous  – why is HS2 being built?  It’s such a huge waste of money.  The Great HS2 Debate fringe event was standing room only with Cheryl Gillan MP, Andrew Bridgen MP and Richard Wellings of the Institute of Economic Affairs eloquently putting forward the evidence against.  The pro panellists were keen to have a punt with £50bn+ of taxpayers’ money because…well…we just need to.  The Tory grassroots remain unconvinced.IMG_1573 IMG_1561 IMG_1593
