On the 23rd October 2010 BNP Cllr Andy Terry attended a public meeting at Water Orton in North Warwickshire. The village lies in the path of the HS2 rail link and this is the first meeting of an action group in the area. Dan Byles Cons MP was present and it is amazing how public opinion can change a member of parliament. Before the election Mr Byles was pro the HS2 rail link ,he confessed that he is now of the opinion that this proposal is no more than a white elephant. The people of Water Orton are unanimous in their objection to the rail link in fact a couple of locals attending commute to London weekly and stated that this would not benefit them at all it just is not worth the cost from a fiscal point of view and the effect on the environment would be catastrophic.
