Perhaps Len should look at this

While Len Brown is looking at spending billions of ratepayers money on old track based technology for his trainset the rest of the world is looking at more modern solutions for rapid transit…like Evacuated Tube Transport designs:

The airless and friction-less form of transport will enable commuters to travel from London to New York in just 45 minutes on the tube.

What’s more, from New York, it could take travellers just two hours to get all the way to China on the ETT, with six-seater passenger pods reaching unbelievable speeds of 4,000mph.

People who fancy an around the world jaunt, on the other hand, could complete this journey in just six hours – and boffins say this could be a reality in less than ten years.

According to scientists, passengers would not be subjected to high G forces and the transport uses far less energy than conventional methods, with it being safer, cheaper and quieter than trains or planes.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
