Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Lichfield and Tatton are two rich areas on the Birmingham to Manchester branch of the line.

I am sure there will be opposition from those close to the predicted route (compulsory purchase prices have not been generous in recent years) but given that both Lichfield and Tatton are full of the demographic that people say HS2 will be full of (rich commuters) there may not be the volume of opposition predicted.

Tattone in particular is only just touched on the edge by HS2. Lichfield may be a bigger issue...
