I have seen it pointed out that parts of HS2 are laid out in an Act of Parliament that has gained Royal Assent and so presumably the PM can't just cancel them.

UK is just a tinpot country, really. Absolutely embarrassing itself constantly on the world stage.

The Northern stretch of HS2 was *never* going to be built. It was bullshot smoke to blow up northern Tories' arses to keep them onside. Now that there's no chance of another Tory government, the curtain has been pulled. Having the Party conference in Manchester is the same energy. "look how much we care about the North! We all came here for a few days and laughed at how backward everyone is"


Absolutely this.

It will never cease to amaze me that, despite supposedly being one of the richest and most-developed countries in the world, the Tories have systematically ensured that none of our public services ever get anywhere close to working, and everyone is still putting up with it.
