Very shortly… Boris Johnson’s reply regarding HS2 in fiery PMQs


During today’s Prime Minister’s Questions, Boris Johnson had just two words in replies to questions about HS2.

Boris Johnson repeatedly replied that a decision would be made ‘very shortly’ when asked about HS2.

HS2 will link London, Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds.

Kevin Hollinrake, MP for Thirsk and Malton, asked about the rail scheme.

He said: “Does the Prime Minister agree that we need to increase capacity in our railways in and between the North, the Midlands, the South and Scotland, and unless we want decades of disruption, the only way to do this through the Midlands Engine rail, Northern Powerhouse Rail and HS2?”

  1. Frankly I think HS2 will be cancelled. Why?
    If it was going to be built HMG would not be dragging their feet but shouting from the roof tops saying.
    “We are going to build the line.”2

  2. The HS2 company should be liquidated with immediate effect – They have mismanaged at every level and stages of the project, some of which include –
    Spending cover ups – lies on budgets and property valuations, some of which where valued at £1.00 with school buildings in the London areas at £425.00
    Environmental impacts – There disregard and ignorance towards our wildlife and protected areas.
    Purchases of properties – there disregard and ignorance towards peoples Homes, land, and farm land while continuing to bully and take property that has not be paid for !!
    There constant lies on project costs and the programme of works being on target – Just look at the former Chris Grayling – lies lies lies.
    Liquidate this incompetent company – they have bankrupted their budgets by Billions, not millions but billions and should be sent packing.
