Crossrail is a great example of public scheme using taxpayers money for the purposes of funding enterpise that benefits the private sector. Crossrail will be siphoning off £16-25 billion of taxpayers money. The City and big business have opted to pay the smallest share despite benefitting from having a brand new line dedicated to fat City boys and property price rises in Canary Wharf and the City as a direct result of Crossrail. Why are UK taxpayers and London communities paying? Because Ken Livingstone and Gordon Brown are afraid of the fat City men Digby Jones and Michael Snyder.
