Our railways are in crisis but MPs want to spend what will be at least £55.7 billion on the wrong plan: High Speed 2 (HS2).
Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn (1) support it but just 1% of the public say HS2 is their top spending priority (2).
HS2 is likely to attract economic activity away from the North of England. There are far less expensive ways of providing the capacity and connectivity needed in our rail network.
The government has ignored expert opinions and stronger plans for too long. And the economic, environmental and human costs are vast (3).
Act now: Ask your MP not waste our money on HS2.
