Now, before I begin, I agree that HS2 is a massive waste of money. For billions of taxpayers pounds you’ll save 30 minutes on your journey, hardly seems worth it, just get up earlier. This is not the reason that these rebellious eco warriors are burrowing underground and playing cards in their own shit and piss though. No it’s because “we’re killing the planet man”.
Of course if they bothered to go to school, they would learn that train travel is in fact the least environmentally impacting of all the modes of transport, so it would appear that they’ve backed the wrong horse in this one and their argument falls a little flat.
I can allow these little miscreants that mistake though and largely forget they caused this minor inconvenience. But then I read some of their names in the news, Rollie, Blue, Larch and Lazer. Their parents were obviously high as fuck when they named them and most likely are the types who smell like pond water. Why is it we’re told you’re not allowed to stereotype, but yet if you told me Rollie and Larch had turned up, I’d be looking for hastily written placards and people wearing hemp sacks for clothes and have brightly coloured hair.
Anyway, I digress, HS2 is costing us enough money as it is, without these protesting, smelly fuckers delaying the project and it costing us more. I notice how they were very happy to be on the news for their 5 minutes of fame, demonising that damned electricity that’s going to be used on the railway but not bothered about the seemingly different electricity used for TV cameras, microphones and TVs. Fucking hypocrites.
