ex UKIP MEP: Nikki SINCLAIRE MEP Hits The Spot with HS2!

Highlighting the dubious behaviour of Birmingham City Council!

.

~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~
Hi,

one wonders how the Party Controlled and whipped Birmingham City Council justifies spending public ratepayers’ money on advertising for and on behalf of a private organisation – making much of their web site and commercial interests.

At the rate payers’ expense.

One has to question the morality of such behaviour – it is like the corrupt and dishonest Councils around the Country that spend huge amounts on publication and distribution of magazines and newsletters for no other purpose than to try to convince the ratepayers just how clever they are – a sales pitch too far when they steal money from the rates!

One must congratulate Nikki Sinclaire MEP for the Region for grasping the nettle and highlighting the corruption of the Council and on a financial basis ensuring she did not steal the money from her constituents for the excercise!

This has another less obvious benefit for the ratepayers, which is to show there is another opinion and a viewpoint that does not believe the overly simplistic and unsourced propaganda on the web site which Birmingham City so glibbly advertises to dupe the rate payers with their own money!

That use of infringement of Human Rights may be excercising Poetic License it clearly is no more than the idiotic claims on the web site:

  • Boosting the West Midlands’ economy by £2.5 billion.
  • Up to 10,000 new construction jobs.
  • Up to 2,000 operational and maintenance jobs.
  • Travel time of 49 minutes between Birmingham and London from the current 85 minutes.
  • Travel time of 38 minutes between Birmingham Interchange Station and London from the current 70 minutes.
  • £5.3 billion in economic benefits to the West Midlands region.
  • Up to 60-70,000 local jobs by 2040 as a result of relocation of jobs from other areas in the UK.
  • An increase in West Midlands GVA of almost six per cent by 2040.
  • Travel times of 54 minutes between Birmingham and Manchester and 65 minutes between Birmingham and Leeds.
  • Reduced carbon of up to a million tonnes a year by 2055.

Let us look at these claims:

Boosting the West Midlands’ economy by £2.5 billion.

I assume this can be verified as it looks far more like a ‘fly a kite’ figure – A breakdown of how such a figure is arrived at may amuse!

Up to 10,000 new construction jobs.

Up to!!!! so that might be 100 jobs?
What is this claim based on in a collapsing market due to political interferrence in Banking Practice etc.

Up to 2,000 operational and maintenance jobs.

Most probably mainly maintenance of course due to ‘The wrong type of leaves’ and the like – Jobs most likely to be taken by immigrant labour sucked in and employed from abroad – we see The Chinese wish to tender for the building of this dubious scam!

Travel time of 49 minutes between Birmingham and London from the current 85 minutes.

It is true this would be a huge benefit as it would make commuting daily from low cost living in The West Midlands to jobs readily syphoned off to London and the South East would be so much easier.

Travel time of 38 minutes between Birmingham Interchange Station and London from the current 70 minutes.

Easier still to move 1,000s of jobs from Birmingham and The West Midlands to London and The SE even as far away as France and Belgium with the Tunnel fully connected – Just as the huge investment in railways in France to bring jobs to the rural poor and decentralise the urban poor led to the lemming like move of the labour force INTO rather than away from the Cities!


£5.3 billion in economic benefits to the West Midlands region.

Nowhere could I find the fag packet on which this suck it and see figure was arrived at, with any degree of veracity!

Up to 60-70,000 local jobs by 2040 as a result of relocation of jobs from other areas in the UK.

So suddenly 10,000 a mere line or two ago grows as would any magic act with out magician producing another 60,000 jobs from thin air by dint of – well…er….um could it be ‘smoke and mirrors’?

History teaches us with almost 100% certainty that any such flow planed can be more reasonably be expected to be in reverse.

An increase in West Midlands GVA of almost six per cent by 2040.

Jargon is always useful when presenting dubious data! GVA : Gross Value Added – a wonderful wooley term meaning the sum total of ‘This is a guess’ and in this case their guess is 6% over 30 years!!

May I remind readers of Her Majesty The Queens prescient words asked of the economically illiterate Gordon Brown, related to the economic collapse and banking crisis:
‘Did no one foresee this and see it coming?’.

Travel times of 54 minutes between Birmingham and Manchester and 65 minutes between Birmingham and Leeds.

And that will have what benefit exactly? Other of course than to rip the countryside apart and destabilise the society yet further with extra travel and commuting!

Reduced carbon of up to a million tonnes a year by 2055.

So it will be opposing the obvious green benefits by reducing CO2 output by upto ! Million tonnes a yesr thus reducing the green gas CO2 on which all plant life depends to flourish – the very gas that is currently increasing plant growth and natural reaforestation – plant life that feeds life forms, many of which we depend on for food stocks.

Read the rest of the web site that Birmingham City Council is advertising for its pals in the money lending, banking, property and consultancy industries periferal to the Kleptocratic QUANGOcracy that is modern Government beset with swindles, self enrichment and expenses fiddles.

Do you believe the propaganda trying to sell YOU the latest despoiler of the countryside and threat to West Midland jobs and stability?

Before being too reliant on the science do remember the scientists were the last people to claim the Earth was flat, that the Sun revolved around our planet, that disease was caused by bad ‘miasma’ and that global warming was in some way due to the paltry efforts of mankind.

In the field of economics it was the self same politicians who advocated the catastrophic concept of EU membership which cost The West Midlands their motor industry and much more besides, it was those same economic illiterates of whom HM The Queen spoke – Those same people who glibly spend YOUR taxes sending you to a web site so full of holes it makes stockings of the 1960s seem sheer!

I believe that nikki Sinclaire MEP did the right thing in raising the profile of this issue and unlike Birmingham City Council she didn’t use Ratepayers’ money to fund the publicity or advertise a private web site bearing no caveats!

MEP Nikki Sinclaire has anti-HS2 banners removed by Birmingham City Council

West Midlands MEP Nikki Sinclaire has accused Birmingham City Council of breaching her human rights, after it removed posters she had placed opposing high speed rail.

Ms Sinclaire is considering legal action after the council’s decision to commission banners, at a cost of £2,250, with the slogan: “Birmingham City Council supports HS2” and placing them at several locations in the city.

The council has yet to formally back the project.

Ms Sinclaire then commissioned rival banners, with the slogan: “Nikki Sinclaire MEP says NO to HS2”. She then placed five of these next to the council’s banners in the city centre.

But the authority has had them removed. A city council spokesman said Ms Sinclaire did not have permission.

Ms Sinclaire said: “This breached of the European Convention on Human Rights, which guarantees freedom of expression.”

Finally what is remotely ‘GREEN’ about seeking to encourage yet more travel and yet more costly travel – as the faster one travels the more fuel is consumed in the main and even going electric this will be IMPOSSIBLE to supply without costly importation of fuel as Nuclear provision is many many years away and as we already know windpower is little more than a joke designed to introduce new taxes as old ones become less viable and government inexorably and mindlessly grows both in size and cost to do less and less!
