Hs2.. ? very expensive and they say likely cost could be over 100bill.
how much per mils to build as compared to say, tgv and equivalents?
On balance, cancel it as too expensive, but not a vote winner one way or another imv.

Talking to Nhs doctors who said money not the problem as such...and this was from 3 years ago upto now as you always meet doctors on holiday...but how you spend it certainly is.

I think the nhs always wants more money... accept it and move on.

Looking at frontine benches is the real worry though imv.
really really scary and laughable.

So, it will be about Brexit.

It would be interesting to compare the cost of HS2 to a new TGV line.

If there is a shortage of front line NHS staff then considering it is the 5th largest employer on the planet then it needs no additional funds until most of the non-front line staff, who clearly are far from essential are kicked out and the system reformed to stop wasting such monstrous amounts of cash (it costs around 2,200 per person pa).

Senior doctors might well be working less, but that is due to the taxation impact of them working on their pensions - many are 'high earners' and so only have a 10k pa pension contribution allowance but their NHS pension value grows by more than that each year resulting in a hefty additional tax bill.
