Party Donors Will Wreck High Speed Link

Now that the initial fanfare has died down surrounding the Coalition Government's announcement of their plans for the future of the nation's rail network, the truth is beginning to emerge out of the spin of hyped investment figures and far off improvements.

An example of how these promises are quickly unravelling is their commitment to the High Speed Link between London, Birmingham and the North.

Substantial Tory Party donors, along with Ministers, are set to derail this high profile service before it ever leaves the station.

But with public consultation on the scheme not due to commence until 2017, this will be another big headline grabbing plan which will be quietly side-lined in the years ahead.
