The government has announced a review of the "High Speed 2" (HS2) rail project, with a decision on whether or not to proceed with it by the end of the year.

The project aims to provide a high speed rail link between London and Birmingham initially, with later phases connecting to Manchester and Leeds.

Boris Johnson will crash and burn
Most new PMs have fairly short "honeymoon" periods before things start going pear shapes, but I can't remember the last time when a new PM had members of his own party resigning from office because they couldn't work with him.

This is my own prediction for PM's prime ministership. It could end up being one of the...

Crying with laughter
Was just watching Mickey Flanagan on Youtube, his 'Shits Abroad' sketch and crying with laughter. His accent alone gets me, why do comedians with accents sound funnier, I wonder.

Who was the last comedian who made you cry laughing?

The project aims to provide a high speed rail link between London and Birmingham initially, with later phases connecting to Manchester and Leeds.

Billions of pounds have already been spent on the project, but as transport secretary Grant Shapps has said: "Just because you've spent a lot of money on something does not mean you should plough more and more money into it."

So what do people think about this project? Is it worth the spiralling cost and environmental damage that it will do?

In today's interconnected world, is there a case for these expensive transport projects? Rather than travelling between London and Birmingham, people can set up a teleconference and talk as if they're in the same room.

So what's your view on this project? Should it go ahead or should it be scrapped?

Qne of the Rothchilds adimists that his great uncle took Palastine from the British.
After the collapse of Ottoman Empire, the British took over Palastine (and Jordan). During WWI when the British was losing badly to Germans, Rothschild offered British to convince Americans to help the Britons in the war if the Britons give them Palastine. Before the WWI ended, the British granted the Zionists' wishes of giving them Palastine, and in exchange the Ameican jews in US media and politics convinced the masses and the politicans that US had to intervine with the war...That's how Palastine was "sold" to the wealthy bankers. (They had gravely miscalcuted the resistance of the indegenious population).

A recent study by the Proceedings of the National Academy of the Sciences, names police officers as the sixth leading cause of death among young men. Police killings were only preceded in frequency by accidental death, a category that includes drug overdoses and car accidents, at 76.6 deaths per 100,000, followed by suicide (26.7), other homicides (22.0), heart disease (7.0), and cancer (6.3). These killings by police include shooting, choking, beating, and various other ways police have taken the lives of Americans.
