    Do you mean Crossrail 2 or HS2?

    HS2. Got my wires crossed there. Should have said I'm in favour of HS2 but canceling upgrades to the network while also okaying Crossrail 2 will only further criticism about London being favoured at the expense of the rest of the country.

    I'm not entirely unopposed to the cancellation of some of the electrification. The stuff they can do in the newer trains with combined diesel/electric propulsion would deliver huge benefits and electrification is enormously disruptive.

    Throwing out the news on trash day and then covering it with a crossrail 2 announcement to keep the london media happy, however, is duplicitous as fuck.

    it's a bit sad, but seeing my government at least manage generic governmental deception is a small relief after a year of retarded clown fiesta incompetence. it helps me believe that at least there actually is a government and we're not all existing in a state of self organising anarchy.... right? guys?
