What ho one and all,
So HMG have given the go-ahead for HS2 at a recently projected budget of over £100 billion. At a good guess, that will at least double by the time it is up and running.
And I see in today's press, the the PM wants a report on the bridge between Scotland and Ireland at a projected cost at the moment of £20 billion. Is that for the investigation or the total building cost?
Obviously the bridge is a better deal but where did they get £20 billion from?
