We seem to have completely lost the ability to deliver infrastructure projects in this country. I am not sure what has gone wrong, its probably a number of things, politicians doing things for short term spin rather than the good of the country, loss of technical knowledge owing to poor support for engineering and related subjects, NIMBYism, no doubt others could expand the list.

As a result of the recent demise of Carrilion HS2 must again be in doubt, and the timescales are ridiculously long anyway, as for follow on projects such as Leeds Manchester, I doubt they will happen in my lifetime.

The French have been able to deliver on this type of thing, and no doubt will continue to do so
