A typical 'grand scheme' that will be another waste of money if it goes ahead. Flighty xx

Oh ye of little faith. Remember what a mess they said they would make of the West Coast Line contract. But they didn't, did they? Did they?

To tell you the truth, I had no idea what HS2 was! I thought it was another chemical formula I had forgotten from tedious science lessons at school. Hydrogen Disulphide? A lethal gas that emerges from the nether regions of successive transport ministers.

Got it in one, YP!

Jennyta said...

You keep telling yourself that, SP. ;)

Ah Yorkshire Pudding, what an interesting resolution.

Jennyta said...

He's full of them, you know, ZACL - interesting resolutions, I mean, not lethal gases... ;)
