painted in the pro-Crossrail Big Business media including the Financial Times and by the USA outlet Bloomberg as an unfair demand on the conglomerates. They are citing this demand as evidence of sloppy and unrealistic thinking on the part of Gordon Brown's administration. This is not so. The problem lies with the sloppiness and the lack of merit in the present Crossrail plan itself.

"CROSSRAIL London is a spin-rail project. It is not a transport plan. It is a propaganda plan being abused and misused by self-seekers to hold it up as a tool to deceive people at elections, London mayor election. It must be scrapped and a real transport plan put in its place. London deserves BETTER than a crassly conceived mess of a package that is deadlocked because it lacks merit… Crossrail is not the name of a picnic to be indulged in. Transport needs of London and the transport needs of the other UK regions should be addressed with maturity, honesty and practicality. CrossRail is none of these things and needs replacing. NOW!
