Again?

They're going great gusto - that's three cancellations in the space of a
few hours ;-)

What else will be added to their list of cancellations I wonder?

I really hope Crossrail is not on the list.

The coalition manifesto is at
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politi...10/8677933.stm
Crossrail is not mentioned. The transport-specific points are...
The establishment of a high-speed rail network.
The cancellation of the third runway at Heathrow.
The refusal of additional runways at Gatwick and Stansted.

This coalition idea is great... all the parties can promise the earth
before the election, then put together a coalition afterwards and then
produce a whole new list of promises out of thin air.

Politics unfortunately, don't feel bad, the promises meant little.
Clearly item 1 (The establishment of a high-speed rail network) was
spouted unencumbered by the thinking process. However, I am glad
Crossrail has not hit their radar yet.
