I must agree with Colin Greaves on the Ilkeston station saga.

How many more excuses are to be made before the plug is pulled on the station?

Excuse after excuse. Are we getting a station or not? My guess is we are not.

Promises, promises, why doesn’t Derbyshire County Council and Erewash Borough Council say loud and clear, ‘sorry we can’t afford it’.

It doesn’t take a lot of brains to build this station, half of it is there already, and I haven’t seen any brawn at work on this so-called station yet. So, like Mr Greaves, what is really happening?
