We have seen the major disruption caused by constructing a roundabout by Warwick University. So imagine what effect HS2 construction would have with heavy lorries, mechanical diggers and lots of dust, day and night?
Is this what we want? Local councillors have done their best to stop this scheme and to put in place compensation and mitigation. But again is that what we want?
Surely if the sums do not add up, if the government has failed to make the case for it, if it is damaging to the environment, and we can’t afford it and we don’t need it, we simply say ‘no, that’s it!’.
If there is any doubt, leave it out!
