"HS2 Chairman, sir Terry Morgan, expects to be sacked"

According to BBC news website, and presumably other media also. Little information as to why he expects this. He has only been chairman for a few months.

The story in The Guardian yesterday implied that he had been brought in as a safe pair of hands to prevent cost overruns because he had done such a good job delivering Crossrail on time and budget.  This view is now being re-considered.

A bit like the football manager hearing that he has the full support of the Chairman.
