“Highways England have been attempting a new take on an old conjuring trick at the Planning Inspectorate’s hearings this week into the proposal for a tunnel on the A303 at Stonehenge.

We are all familiar with the ‘Shell Game’, where the conjurer moves the cups or shells around whilst the gambler focuses on the cup they think hides the pea – in this instance Highways England are attempting to project the illusion that removing tarmac from the National Trust’s land surrounding Stonehenge improves the whole World Heritage Site. Focusing on the other two cups instead of the cup with the stones underneath everyone can spot what they are up to.

Highways England  – you may fool some of the people some of the time, but not all of the people all of the time!”
