Are You Ready for a 3rd Runway at Heathrow?
The noise level on this topic keeps rising. The Evening Standard has mounted a major campaign of scare stories about how we are turning into a “business backwater.” They are sponsoring a big debate on 27 June. Osborne and other Tories are now pushing for expansion, regardless of official policy. Labour had already approved the third runway before the Coalition came in, and Alastair Darling recently reiterated Labour support for expansion. Do we agree that “the only obvious solution” is more flights from Heathrow and it is just a few NIMBYs standing in the way?
