How do people on the South Coast and East Anglia feel about HS2? Is there demand for it in cities like Southampton and Portsmouth or Ipswich and Norwich?

I support HS2 but I think it should go further than just the Midlands and North.

Perhaps we could build a line from London to Southampton that would then go on Exeter and Plymouth.

How about a line from London to Ipswich and Norwich and then heading southwest through Cambridge and Milton Keynes until it reaches Bristol or heading west to Leicester and then on to Birmingham? Or both?

It appears that the East-West connections in this country are poor but would the demand be there to warrant the expenditure?
