High-speed UK

Looks like the head of the Railway network in the UK has told the government that they need to spend 50billion GBP for a high speed rail network prior to 2020. I bet he really had to stop himself from saying that if they weren’t such a bunch of useless oafs the UK would already have such a network and they would not need to spend so much money. But then he could be lucky and some of the network he proposes is actually realised. However, the UK government is not the best when it comes to this kind of future planning…

  [The head of UK’s rail network] will commission a detailed study soon into possible routes for a network that is likely to cost more than £50 billion to complete. Network Rail has decided to take a lead after becoming frustrated by the Department for Transport’s lack of progress on the issue of high-speed rail.

Good luck.
