SNP fury as HS2 finds 'no business case' for taking fast train service to Scotland 

 


High Speed Trains. Not going to Scotland anytime soon!




I am not an HS2 supporter and personally would scrap the whole idea. However,having been practically promised the HS2 link into Scotland, it is very understandable why the SNP and presumably hundreds of thousands of people in Scotland, would be incensed at yet another "English renege" on an undertaking now clearly designed to promote a "No" vote in the Scottish independence referendum. How many more promises, undertakings, assurances made to the Scottish people during the campaign will be broken by Cameron and his wretched government over the coming months?
More Scots now wishing they had voted "Yes" is hardly surprising.
