I fully agree with Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham on the key points he makes about the new revised HS2 plans. The altered plans seriously compromise the aim to “level up” north and south of our country, and the savings result in a less than best, second rate scheme. See here a news piece where Andy Burnham is being interviewed. I wish the people of Manchester, my former home town, the very best of luck with HS2.
Mayor Burnham is a man I do believe would put party politics aside if needed. I used to see him on an excellent political programme called “Party People” and I saw even then a very talented politician who really cares about Manchester and the people and issues that effect it.

Do you support the HS2 scheme?
