‘I thought the only decent thing about the HS2 concept was the whole connection of the cities above Birmingham’
Steve Davies: “It was pretty cheesy to ask his wife to introduce him; In fact, it was unfortunate. He comes and says that he has kept his promises, no, no, the ships keep coming. We’ve been stabbed in the streets, we haven’t grown up, the next thing he’ll tell us is that he can walk on water. I am not convinced that he is the right leader.”
Michael Grahame: “Disaster of a conference and disaster of a Prime Minister. Either we do the whole HS2 and create a British Shinkansen network or we don’t do it at all. If you are scrapping the Manchester route, cancel the entire route entirely. It doesn’t make sense anymore. The guy who built HS1 was on the Today show, he completed the project on time and under budget. He applied for the role of Head of HS2 and was told he didn’t have enough experience!
Grant Williams: “Scrapping HS2 will have unintended consequences. If you are a young person living in the north and finding it too difficult to get better-paying jobs, you are likely to move to the south-east, where transport links operate, driving up rents and prices for scarce housing and putting risk increasing pressure on resources.
“HS2 may not be the best idea, but you could argue that neither were the Victorian railways we all used. Most of those early companies went bankrupt, but aren’t we relieved that someone had the foresight to draw some lines? “If we don’t invest heavily in areas beyond the southeast, we will stagnate.”
Stuart Davies: “Instead of reinvesting our money and our debt that has piled up on top of this unmanaged and overpriced project of arrogance, why not just stop wasting money, stop spending our money, start saving money, reduce our debts and our taxes through waste, incompetence and incompetence? greed.
“I thought the only decent thing about the HS2 concept was the whole connection of the cities above Birmingham.”
Billy of Northumbria: “So we live in a world where when walking through the streets of every town or city you can smell cannabis everywhere and no police measures are taken, but there is political will to ban smoking.
“As a non-smoker, with the bans inside, smokers only harm themselves and, with the price of a cigarette, when they arrive at the hospital they have already more than paid for their treatment.
“This is the subjugation of an innocent and extremely non-conservative minority.”
Francisco Alberto:“Black market cigarette dealers are rubbing their hands together and more serious criminals will soon get involved. “These idiots have not learned the lesson of Prohibition, which only increased serious crime with all the terrible violence involved.”
John Gill: “Have I understood this correctly? In Sunak’s big speech at the end of the conference, all he plans to do is “scrape A levels, downgrade HS2 and ban young people from smoking”? Does he really want to lose the next election because otherwise he needs to do a lot more than this? “Labor must be laughing until the next general election.”
Harry Hopper: “Good news about the smoking ban: it is an absolutely disgusting habit that should be eradicated and the government can do it.
“I’m not sure about the other ads. Sunak should focus solely on two main issues: immigration and tax cuts. If he manages to make progress on those two issues, he will be able to start his shopping list for the others that appear in the electoral manifesto.”
