'The government had published its Integrated Rail Review, which involved scrapping the eastern leg of HS2 but also severely downgrading Northern Powerhouse Rail. Boris had previously pledged to deliver it all in full, but we know Sunak was worrying about costs and forced him to backtrack. The backlash was almighty - not least, understandably, from Tory MPs in red wall seats.' Peter Brookes
