We have always said that HS2 is about jobs for the boys

Joe Rukin

Stop HS2 campaigner Joe Rukin, said: “We have always said that HS2 is about jobs for the boys, and the bosses see to be running their own gravy train. It seems there is an ever increasing number of snouts in an ever expanding tax-payer funded trough, as the only thing anyone at HS2 Ltd seems to know how to do is chuck money into a financial black hole.”
