According to this morning’s news reports a £500 million tunnel is to be built in the Parliamentary seat of Cheryl Gillan MP, the Secretary of State for Wales, to mitigate the impact of the High Speed Rail connection being proposed to run through her Amersham constituency and to try and avert her resignation from the Cabinet over the issue.

So now we know the starting price of a Cabinet seat in the Tory Party – £500 million.

But will it be enough to stave off her resignation?  And what else could that money have been spent on?
