Below is media generated propaganda that even Joseph Goebbels would have been proud of back in the day as HS2 bosses manipulate their way into naming the first HS2 Tunnel Boring Machines into that of iconic women.
If HS2 were in charge of the Atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki no doubt they would have elected for them to be called freedom and hope. They are presently running a campaign to name the first pair of tunnel boring machines to be used on the high-speed rail project.
HS2 Ltd has also temporarily closed its offices and its contracting partners continue to review works taking place across its construction sites to ensure they are operating within the UK Government and Public Health England advice on dealing with COVID-19. Find out more information.
In other words the destruction goes on and the propoganda desk is still open for missinformation and promtion of ecocide to one and all.
The HS2 Helpdesk remains operational all day, every day, and is your first point of contact: Freephone 08081 434 434; Minicom 08081 456 472; Email: HS2enquiries@hs2.org.uk. If you contact us by post there will be an extended delay in us receiving and responding.
Earlier this year, HS2’s contractor Align engaged with local schools in Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Hillingdon and asked students to put forward names of women who have made their mark on history through their achievements.
As their tradition dictates that in order to keep the tunnellers safe underground, tunnel boring machines (TBMs) are given a female name before they are launched. The women below were shortlisted and they now want you to vote for your favourite name for our machines. Voting rights to pretend that this is being done in a transparent and democratic way.
After the above news item they then run propaganda piece in an online magazine called railtechnologymagazine.com entitled HS2: More important than ever to invest in essential skills.
This is a question of propoganda versus truth everyone involved in the production of HS2 from the Boris downwards is responsible for this macroshambles that is being peddled across the media.
