Never mind high speed rail - how about a Thames barrage.

I know politicians and civil servants would like to cut a bit of time of their first class commute to and from Manchester. But really shouldn't the priority be a Thames barrage to prevent a storm surge doing to London what just happened to northern Japan ?

Also: See Labour's Thames gateway potential disaster earlier post.

If we had an off-shore airport MIAS, we could have a nice new one!

I think actually, I'd like to see those politicians and civil servants on the other side of it though...

A realistic 1000 year flood barrier would be far nearer Southend than that ...
