UK high-speed train link sign now

We undersigned strongly believe that Great Britain needs a high-speed train link between its major cities, and thought should be given to high-speed trains reaching the entire nation by the 2012 Olympics.
If we take a look at other countries we see that France has the TGV, Japan the Shinkansen, Germany the Maglev and so on. There are 3,480 miles of high speed railway lines in mainland Europe with a further 2,160 miles under construction and 5,280 miles planned for the future. In Britain, despite inventing the world's first passenger railway we only have 68 miles (the Channel Tunnel High Speed One link) in operation.
The UK's economy cannot continue to grow and compete on a global stage without a high-speed rail network in the UK. Therefore we urge the UK government to address this issue.
