HS2 chief hits out at ‘unjust’ division of rail assets between north and south
High-speed rail project’s chairman Sir David Higgins says north of England is often shortchanged and given ‘crappy’ hand-me-down trains
Britain has lacked, according to mild-mannered Sir David Higgins, a proper sense of outrage. Not the kind of anger that anti-HS2 protesters vent at the £50bn high-speed rail project Higgins leads, but outrage at the injustice that sees one half of the country routinely look down upon the poorer.
Two hours from Birmingham to Leeds on old crappy trains. We would not accept that from London to Swindon
