Nonsense: HS2 frees up a lot of capacity on the classic lines by moving all the high-speed travel which takes up a lot of space in a heterogenous network to its own more homogenous line. Have you tried travelling to/from North Kent before and after HS1 opened? It's like night and day.
But we've discussed this at some length before and still the lie that HS2 is only about speed and does nothing for the problems gets repeated. If you want to argue against HS2, argue against it factually (and there are some valid grounds, mainly that it costs too much for the good it does) instead of repeating the lie.
