The Liverpool Echo has the article on its website – see link below:-
I still look upon the Northern Powerhouse as a Northern Poorhouse as it seems to be a southern view of what we northerners need or a southern promise which never seems to be properly funded.
The idea of connecting cities from Liverpool to Hull by high speed rail is spot on but it is too oft talked about rather than actually being delivered within a reasonable timescale. The Liverpool Echo article clearly demonstrates the present problems but what we need ‘up north’ is UK Government investment delivered by a decentralised accountable body and we need to get on with it NOW.
Oh and no Burham Bandwagoning over it too please.
