The vast majority residents in Leeds and West Yorkshire have zero interest in HS2 and see it for the huge waste of public funds and white elephant it is.
First it was sold as reducing journey times to London by a whopping 20 minutes, then it was capacity and extra local trains,now it’s environmental all of which are pure fabrication.

Leeds has Labour run for over 20 years and yet they still haven’t managed to put forward a plausible MTS.
