the screaming need or decent commuting services in the north has been known about for a decade and more. HS2 was never a part of that: In fact it took money away from the investment needed.

But you can't expect long term planning from tories, it's all about the 24 hr news cycle.

Aside from the northern commuter schemes, what the country really needs are solutions for freight paths from Thames Gateway in Essex to the Midlands and the north. No sign that has crossed anybody's desk in whitehall
