Call You and Yours with Julian Worricker. The proposed high speed rail link - HS2- has been in the headlines over the past few days as the Yes to High Speed Rail group has stepped up its campaign. They have produced posters that have gone on buses in Manchester which carry the headline "Their lawns or our jobs?" One uses an image of a businessman doffing his bowler hat, the other features a country mansion. However these class based images have been strongly criticised by people opposed to the £33 billion link. The proposed link will run from London to the West Midlands and eventually up to Leeds and Manchester with room for further potential links. But the proposed service has been very controversial. Are you affected by it? What are your concerns about the environment? Will it generate more business for the UK? Is this a price worth paying? How do you feel about the class divide being used in a North versus South campaign? Were you affected by High Speed 1, that is the Channel Tunnel link? Was it in a positive or negative way?
