So a couple of hundred homes will be bulldozed to benefit 100s of thousands of people . Not that one makes light of the personal anguish suffered by those in the path of HS2 but let's get a sense of proportion here. A very lot of jobs , bringing delight to many unemployed people , a massive boost for business that has to trickle down into society .....
And it's not as if the homes and businesses have 3 months notice so why oh why are people jumping up and down . Is it genuine worries or that good old British trait of righteous indignation ?
At least the EU haven't made it illegal to discriminate against NIMBYs !
