To be fair on this occasion the government should threw some money in. Have you any idea how much tax Sirius would be paying when in full swing ? Its totally different from bailing out a failing business. The government should be more forward thinking
As far as I understand it the plan is to transport the polyhalite via tunnel from Whitby to Teesport. I get that they don`t want to ruin the National Park but why can`t they end the tunnel at say Loftus or Liverton and then transfer to lorries ? Surely reducing the tunnel length by half will reduce funds needed significantly ? Why tunnel all the way to Teesport ???
