What Responsibilities and Rights?

by Jeremy on 20-Jan-2012

Two online articles from the Telegraph and Guardian today deal respectively with some of the realities of the possibility of compensation for HS2 and the government’s dismissive attitude to the financial damage that is caused by some of its decisions to people affected – unless the numbers of people affected are big enough to give it concern about its own political future. The Telegraph also draws attention to the point that ‘carpetbaggers may be tempted to try to pick up bargains at discounted prices along the HS2 route or its margins. The Guardian highlights that where damages to individuals are likely to result from a government project, the success of any objections may simply come down to how many object and who they know.
