The article 'Public spending cuts possible if Tube PPP hits money troubles' (NCE 14 February) really made my blood boil. Living in Cornwall where, according to the BBC news, we never have weather, we feel very isolated and left out.
The London Tube system is built for, belongs to and is used by people who live, work in and visit London. Presumably, since it is their facility, they should pay for it.
Working as I do for a local authority which is having difficulty raising a mere £750,000 for a bus station, my mind boggles at the sums involved. What really annoys me is the underlying threat that this could result in public expenditure cuts. Since the job is done in and for London, the cuts should fall there, not here.
