Simon Jenkins hits the bullseye. HS2 would merely have the effect of turning Birmingham into a London suburb. We need a major investment programme in high-speed rail that runs from Liverpool to Hull, and up to Newcastle. This programme must also link up all of the cities and smaller towns in between so that people can access decent-paying jobs without having to up sticks and move away from home. Both for the sake of justice, as well as on economic grounds, such a programme should take precedence over HS2.

A paradox. Elections can be decided by the amount of taxpayers’ money each political party believes should be spent by the state. Yet the total sum of taxpayers’ hard-earned cash going to each of the major government programmes, and particularly the largest — the welfare budget encompassing health, social care, social security, education, and housing — has long been unclear to most of the country. Equally strange is how little attention has been given to what those programmes cost. As Andrew Forsey and I argue in our book Not for Patching, the government should set up a strategic welfare review to examine the outcomes taxpayers ought to expect from those sums.
